Former Super Eagles defender Austin Eguavoen says Super Eagles defender – William Troost-Ekong has filled in the space of former team skipper Yobo in Nigeria’s senior national team.

Eguavoen feels the Gent defender is a perfect heir to retired skipper, Joseph Yobo.

“The Super Eagles’ defense is now in good shape”, Eguavoen told Sports Village Square.

“The defence line-up has been fantastic due to the impact of Troost-Ekong. He has done well in coordinating the team defense line in recent games.

“He has filled in the space of former captain, Joseph Yobo, and based on form I see the Super Eagles winning Saturday’s match with South Africa”, said Eguavoen

Eguaveon, the Sunshine stars coach in NPFL also played for Troost EKong’s current team KAA Gent, where he moved to from local side ACB Lagos in 1986.

The former Super Eagles coach sees Nigeria qualifying for the Nations Cup, and the World Cup, considering the current crop of talents in the team.

“The team is full of youngsters who are willing to play and make names. All what the team needs is love and support from the fans and by doing this, I see us grabbing the Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup tickets.”
