Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong says the team is battle ready for today’s (Wednesday) 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying clash against the Squirrels of Benin.
The two teams will clash in the matchday-one fixture at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo. The kick-off is 5pm.
“All of us are here because we are very passionate to play football, all of us want to do well for our country,” Troost-Ekong said ahead of the match,”Troost-Ekong told reporters.
“I have not experience what it is like to win the AFCON title. I think Kenneth [Omeruo] and [Ahmed] Musa have experienced that so I think that for me it’s still a fire that’s burning.
“So, it always makes you want to do more we want to make sure we qualify from the group we want to go further we want to do something that hasn’t been done before.
“So, I don’t think it is ever a question of motivation and I don’t think you can ever be in a position where you’re done with your country until you’ve won everything and we are not there yet all of us are very passionate.
“I think it’s easy to be motivated for this type of challenge because we want to be at the tournament again.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
