Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong says the team is hungry and ready for redemption after their shambolic showing against Sierra Leone on Friday.

Leon Balogun has expressed confidence the Super Eagles will overcome Sierra Leone in Freetown on Tuesday.

Balogun was in action against the Leon Stars in Benin before going off with a knock.

Despite the Super Eagles going into the break with a 4-1 lead, Sierra Leone fought back to secure a shock 4-4 draw.


And looking forward to the return leg in Freetown, Balogun believes the Eagles will come out top.

“Lesson to learn from Friday night: never let success get to your head and never let failure get to your heart.

“We will come out on top of this,” the Rangers defender wrote on his verified Twitter handle.

Meanwhile, Victor Osimhen will not feature against Sierra Leone after dislocating his shoulder.
