Nigeria Looking Beyond Argentina Friendly Match, World Cup Draws – Troost-Ekong


Super Eagles defender, William Troost-Ekong says the team must have to believe in their capability in making things possible ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Troost-Ekong who played an integral part in the team’s qualification for the World Cup in Russia, stated that Argentina doesn’t pose a threat to the team and that Nigeria has what it takes to beat any team.

“I am not scared to play against any team. But, of course, we hope for a favourable draw. We have to believe in ourselves just like we did in the qualifying campaign.

“Many doubted us winning a group with Cameroon and Algeria, and look where that got
us! The experience garnered playing for the Super Eagles has been life-changing for me.

“Facing some of the best forwards in Africa, whilst having to perform and deliver for such a
football-loving nation like Nigeria is a pressure that improves you as a player.

“I enjoy being with the team and working with quality players. Playing alongside someone like
Leon Balogun with his quality has definitely helped, but I would feel just comfortable playing
next to anyone now.”
