The Super Eagles deputy captain, William Troost-Ekong, called the Super Eagles B camp in Ghana to express his unwavering support for the squad as it battles Ghana for a spot in the 2023 African Nations Championship, which will be held in Algeria.

On Sunday in Cape Coast, the important match against the Galaxies will begin at 4 p.m. Ghana time (or 5 p.m. Nigeria time).

The English defender for Watford FC promised to watch the game live. He then offered his team’s assistance in any way needed to win the crucial home-and-away cracker and secure the ticket.

On Friday, while the squad was en route to Ghana, Ekong contacted the players through team captain Tope Olusesi.

He said: “Hello captain, this is Ekong and I just want to wish you and the guys and the staff all the best in the game against Ghana. I know it won’t be easy but I believe in you guys.

“Continue to make us proud. Every time you put on the green and white jerseys, it’s something very special and as players, we can’t be there to support you guys now but we will be watching the match and I am praying for victory for you guys. So, keep working hard like you have been doing; we are following you and I’m following all the news and I will be watching the game and I look forward to meeting with you guys.

 “Wishing you all the best and just know that I am supporting you guys one hundred percent and if there’s anything I can do to help you guys please let me know. Up the Super Eagles! Take care and all the best. Speak with you again soon.”

The return leg is scheduled for Saturday, 3rd September at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.
