Super Eagles captain, William Troost-Ekong has confirmed himself fully fit for Nigeria’s Round of 16 clash in the ongoing African Cup of Nations, after he missed the crucial and final Group A fixture against the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium, Abidjan on Monday.

The three-time AFCON champions qualified to the knockout phase with a slim 1-0 win over Guinea-Bissau, to go second in the group on 7points with Equatorial Guinea, who topped with a plus 4 goals difference.

SportingSun gathered that the center-half has shaken off from the hamstring injury he picked in Super Eagles’ 1-0 victory against hosts Cote d’Ivoire on Thursday last week.
