William Troost-Ekong has saluted the Super Eagles’ never-say-never attitude in their come back win against Lesotho in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers in Maseru.
Ekong paired Semi Ajayi in central defence as the Eagles rallied from a goal down to beat their hosts 4-2.
The 26 year-old praised the team’s performance on social media and attributed it to the tenacious and dogged ‘Naija spirit’.
“+3 Well done boys! That’s the Naija spirit!, he tweeted.
