Super Eagles will be back better and stronger - Troost Ekong tell Nigerians

William Troost-Ekong, the captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, has apologized to Nigerians for the team’s poor performance in the World Cup playoffs versus Ghana.

The Super Eagles defender promised Nigerians and football fans around the world that the Nigerian National Team would come back stronger and better.Super Eagles will be back better and stronger - Troost Ekong to Nigerians

After a 1-1 tie with Ghana’s Black Stars on Tuesday in Abuja, the Watford defender issued an apology to Nigerians for the team’s failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Recall that Footballrover had earlier reported that Super Eagles were unable to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after playing out a draw vs Ghana, giving the Black Stars the opportunity to book their spot with a goal difference advantage.

The 28-year-old, though, described the setback as a “bitter pill to swallow” in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

To all Nigerians, on behalf of the team, we want to apologise for not securing the World Cup ticket. Despite giving it everything possible, it wasn’t meant to be. First and foremost, as Nigerians, we share your emotions and we take our responsibility as a group. We sincerely thank the Nigerian fans for their overwhelming support, the NFF President who did everything possible to make the qualification happen and of course the Minister. A bitter pill to swallow but believe me we will be back better and stronger,” he wrote.
