MAN of the match in Nigeria's 2-0 win against Guinea Bissau, Troost Ekong wants to win the tournament this year with the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

No doubt, The Super Eagles of Nigeria have proven themselves a worthy opponent in the AFCON tournament as they have made it known, through their ruthless winnings, their desire to win the AFCON Trophy for the fourth time.

The emphasis on winning the tournament could not be more clear as Troost Ekong echoed it again into the ears of Nigerians all over the world while speaking to the press after the game against Guinea Bissau yesterday, Thursday, January 19, 2022.

“I want to win the tournament this time, the last tournament in Egypt we managed to win bronze and missed out on the final, that was upsetting for most of us. This time around, we want to do better, there is a long way, the only thing we can guarantee is our effort and try to put in some good performances,"  Ekong said.

The 28-year-old defender who plays for England club Watford scored the second goal in Nigeria's win against Guinea Bissau at the 75th minute.
