William Troost-Ekong has asked the Nigeria national team to completely focus in when they take on Sierra Leone in Today’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game.
The Super Eagles wasted a 4-0 lead to play out a draw with the Leone Stars at Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City on Friday.
On Monday, Gernot Rohr’s men showed up in Freetown for the reverse fixture of the encounter and had their first training session.
Troost-Ekong clarified the three-time African heroes are fight prepared for the game and encouraged his side to completely think and secure each of the three points in the trip.
”We are ready, we just finished a good practice session and everyone’s ready for the game tomorrow,” Troost-Ekong told the media.
“We prepare like any other game with this team (Sierra Leone). We don’t underestimate anyone and if we can just bring what we did in the first half of the last game and make sure we keep concentrated and see out the game, I think we have a good chance to do what we need to do.
“They (Nigerian fans) will see a team that is very hungry to get the win here. We want to qualify as soon as possible and it is up to us to do it today.”
