Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong has disclosed that the team has learned some valuable lessons from Saturday’s game against England ahead of the start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Troost-Ekong, who scored his first international goal in the 1-1 draw with DR Congo on Monday, was speaking in a chat with reporters after the game played at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.
In his words, Troost-Ekong said: “It’s a great test today. I think these are the kind of games you play to learn a lot.”
“I think we learnt how to deal with a team that plays with this kind of formation (referring to England’s five-man defence).”
Troost-Ekong and his teammates will next face Czech Republic in Austria on June 6 in what’s their final warm up game before the tournament in Russia.
