Super Eagles central defender, William Troost-Ekong, has re­vealed a strong desire to face for­mer world champions, Brazil at next year’s World Cup in Russia, follow­ing Nigeria’s qualification for the tournament.

Ekong who has formed a formidable central defence partnership with Leon Balo­gun now famously referred to as ‘Oyi­bo Wall” said he wants Nigeria to face Brazil or England.

“We now have a very good team. And right now we have our eyes on the World Cup draws which will take place in December. We will probably meet some stronger teams because of our position in the FIFA rankings,” Ekong said.

“It would be nice to play Brazil or England. At the 2016 Olympic Games we lost in the semi-final and then I was looking forward to playing in the final against Brazil.

“So it would be nice to get the chance at the World Cup. Playing at a World Cup is very special to me as a footballer,”, he said.
