Nigeria’s assistant captain, William Troost-Ekong, has described his defensive partner, Kenneth Omeruo, as a fantastic player.

Troost-Ekong also said that the appointment of Austin Eguavoen as the national team’s new boss has brought a breath of fresh air in the squad, which could mean that things were not right under Gernot Rohr, who was dismissed prior to the tournament.

He suggested that things have changed for the better under Eguavoen.

Troost-Ekong and Omeruo have marshalled the Super Eagles central for their wins against Egypt and Sudan.

The former Tottenham man said he was delighted with the competition for places in the defence with a new coach in the dugout for this tournament.

“With our new coach it has been a breath of fresh air. Everyone is fighting again to show themself and everyone wants to carry out the instructions from our new coach, Kenneth as well,” he told a press conference on Tuesday.

“We’ve got younger players as well so it’s up to the coach to make the selection and I enjoy playing with Kenneth, I think he’s a fantastic defender so it makes it easy but we have a lot of options defensively as well for the Super Eagles at the moment.

“It’s keeping us all sharp and making us try to perform to our best ability to try and keep a spot when we get a chance to play.”
