Ahmed Musa surrenders Eagles captain’s armband to William Ekong on Saturday vs Libya

Udinese defender William Troost-Ekong has set his eyes on the Super Eagles making it a double over Libya in 2019 AFCON qualifiers after a resounding 4-0 victory in Uyo at the weekend.

Nigeria get an immediate rematch against the North Africans tomorrow in Sfax, Tunisia.

Kick-off time is 7pm.

The former Tottenham Hotspur player, who was part of the team who demolished the Libyans in Uyo, now targets another three points with Eagles against Libya.

“Three points. Clean sheet. Great work from the boys. Always enjoy playing on my home soil in Uyo. Special mention of Odion Ighalo, congrats on your hat-trick bro. On to Tuesday now to finish the job!” tweeted Ekong, who wore the captain’s armband when stand-in skipper Ahmed Musa was replaced in the second half on Saturday.

The Eagles are now second in Group E with six points from three matches, while Libya dropped to third with four points.

South Africa lead the group on seven points with Seychelles bottom after they are yet to record any points.
