William Troost-Ekong says the Super Eagles are still adapting to the style of new manager Jose Peseiro.
The Super Eagles filed out for the first time under the Portuguese against Mexico on Sunday, and had a slow start to the game.
Speaking at a news conference ahead of the second friendly game against Ecuador, the Watford defender said the team plans to do better than they did against Mexico where they lost 2-1.
“I think there are a lot of positive that we can take from the game against Mexico, of course this is the first time I played against Mexico and the result wasn’t bad.
“It was an opportunity to play against a big team on a big stage. We have players who are new in the team, debutants.”
“It’s game of two halves and we should have done better in the first.We are still trying to find our feet in a new system and play a lot better. There are positive to take from the game towards Afcon qualifiers.”
Ekong however believes both games will prepare the team for the forthcoming African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
“Against Ecuador, we’ll be playing against a good side and used the opportunity to prepare and be ready for our important game in the Afcon qualifiers,” He concluded.
