Captain Troost-Ekong's Heartfelt Plea: Embrace Hope for the Super Eagles! (Discover His Inspiring Words)

William Troost-Ekong, the vice-captain of the Super Eagles, has urged Nigerian football enthusiasts to come together in support of the team. The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations began for the Super Eagles with a disappointing 1-1 draw against Equatorial Guinea’s Nzalang Nacional.

In the upcoming match on Thursday against the host team, Cote d’Ivoire, Jose Peseiro’s squad needs to avoid a defeat to enhance their chances of advancing to the next round. Despite the team’s less-than-impressive performance in the initial match, Troost-Ekong emphasized the significance of continued fan support.

“I just want to say thank you for the support for the guys that came out there,” the PAOK Salonica of Greece defender said after the game.

” Of course, we’re disappointed; we feel the same way as you guys, we wanted to win today, but I think we have to look at the positives.

“We created a lot of chances, and on another day we would have won that game, and will be very motivated Thursday. Don’t give up on us.”

Thursday’s encounter billed for the Alassanne Quattara Stadium, Ebimpe, Abidjan will kick-off at 5pm.
