–Eagles defender says he needs to work hardfer to reclaim his shirt
AS Monaco left-back Elderson Echiejile has called on Uyo fans to be the 12th man when the Eagles take on South Africa in their final group game today at the newly built Akwa Ibom Stadium.
Echiejile admitted that having defeated Congo in Pointe Noire, a win from this encounter is not negotiable.
“We have redeemed ourselves in Congo and now we must complete the job against South Africa,” he told Complete Sports.
“But, I’ll implore the good loving people of Uyo to come in numbers and support the team.”
The former SC Braga defender who lost his place to Juwon Oshaniwa was also optimistic of reclaiming his place in the team.
“I’m a team player and I will be supporting the team all the way. This setback won’t discourage me but make me work harder to reclaim my place.”
