It’s my dream to play in AFCON – Ekong

Defender William Troost Ekong has declared his readiness to play for the country at the next African Cup of Nations in Cote D’Ivoire.

Ekong has played in the last two competitions in Egypt and Cameroon but his chance of playing in Cote D’Ivoire is bleak.

The lanky defender has been out of the Super Eagles, missing the last 4 matches for the national team.

” “You know we had spoken about this with PAOK when I joined them because, at that time, I was the captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria,” the centre-back said.

“And I said yes, we worked very hard as a team to qualify for the AFCON, and of course, it is my dream to go there and win the trophy, so my club is aware of the situation.

“Of course now in the last few months, I have had the situation where I have had to rethink everything, really and it will be a big sacrifice, especially how everything is going here at the club.

“So, I would love to do that again. But you have to feel the appreciation, of course, and get the invite, so we will see about that, but I will just keep working hard on my club.

“I will just continue to give my best performances and then we will see what happens,” he told Oma Sports
