William Troost Ekong is backing Super Eagles attackers to get the goals when they face Ghana’s Black Stars in Abuja on Tuesday.
The Super Eagles played out a goalless draw with their counterparts in the first Qatar 2022 leg playoff at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Tuesday.
Following the goalless draw, The Super Eagles have now failed to scored a goal in the last two games, despite parading some of the best forwards on the continent.
Speaking to the media after the draw in Kumasi, Ekong said there is no cause for alarm and assured Nigerians that the attackers will find their scoring form in the second leg.
“I think you can look at it two ways, I think you are missing out some the guys that came in Dennis, Ighalo these are all players that are known to score goals and I will back them, I think they’re going to feel even more challenged to score and I assure everybody that they can do that.”
“On the other half I think that we have only conceded one goal in five games so maybe that’s where our strength lies as well and of course the boys scored in the AFCON as well and I’m not worried about that at all I see them in training everyday and I have seen what they’ve done in the Nigeria jersey, it’s just a matter of time and I think the statistics are going to be in our favour if they’ve not scored for so long before they’re probably going to score in our Abuja game. ” The Watford defender said.
