Speaking with si.com, Troost-Ekong stated that though he and his team-mates are getting ahead of themselves, they are not ruling out the possibility of claiming the ultimate prize.


"I think the potential is there," Troost-Ekong said.


"But I don't want to put any pressure on us. But the signs are there. If you believe, why not?"


Troost-Ekong also spoke about how the team's preparation  before the encounter with Sweden progressed.


"It was a lot easier to prepare for (than the first game)," he stated.


"The guys were better rested, and they didn't have seven hours in the airplane in their legs, so that helped.


"We had some time to discuss more tactics, whereas we didn't have time for that last time."
