Despite the difference in class between the two teams, Troost-Ekong has warned that the Leone Stars will be a tough nut to crack.


“The coach has told us we must be ready for a tough game. They have good players in their team and can really hurt us,”Troost-Ekong declared.

“So we are not going to underrate them. We have to go all with a fight from the start. We can just expect that things will be easy on the pitch.

“We have six points already and we want to win the next two games.”
