EXCLUSIVE: Super Eagles Will Fight Hard To Beat Cote d’Ivoire — Troost-Ekong

William Troost-Ekong says the Super Eagles will give their all to beat hosts Cote d’Ivoire in their next game at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The encounter is billed for the Alassanne Quattara Stadium, Ebimpe, Abidjan on Thursday.

The Super Eagles held the Nzalang Nacional of Equatorial Guinea to a 1-1 draw in their first game on Sunday.

The Elephants claimed a 2-0 victory against Guinea-Bissau in the opening game of the competition.

Nigeria need to avoid defeat against Jean Louis Gasset’s men to boost their chances of claiming a place in the Round of 16.

Troost-Ekong reckoned it is important for the Super Eagles to go all out and fight for a win.

“We know what is at stake against Cote d’Ivoire. It’s a must win game for us and we must fight hard for the three points,” the PAOK Salonica of Greece player told Completesports.com.

”It’s going to be a difficult game, we know that. They will have 60,000 fans in the stadium backing them to win.

It’s not something that is going to scare us. We are top professionals and have have face similar situation like this in the past.

” We will give our best and ensure we come out with a win.”

    Don’t talk more and more and more; talk on the pitch, more talking will press the team , then it will be beaten, so I recommend Super Eagles players to talk on the pitch , play organzied and pressing and tactical game with committment and dedication, if you do this , you will beat Cote De’ Ivore.
