    Nigeria looking beyond Argentina friendly, World Cup draws - Troost-Ekong

    By Augustine Akhilomen

    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.”
