Harrison Jalla, the Chairman of Professional Footballers Association of Nigeria (PFAN), on Saturday named the likes of William Troost-Ekong and Victor Osimhen as perfect leaders in the current Super Eagles squad amid the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Jalla also congratulated Nigeria ahead of the Super Eagles AFCON final with Ivory Coast on Sunday night, insisting that the country’s 4th AFCON title is already in the Bag.

Speaking with NAN in Lagos, Jalla said:

“Team leadership is the most essential ingredient in building a winning team and it started in the Nigerian National team from the days of Christian Chukwu as Captain to Segun Odegbami, Stephen Keshi, Uche Okechukwu, Sunday Oliseh and Mikel Obi.

“The present set of Super Eagles have found the perfect leadership in William Troost-Ekong and Victor Osimhen; this right leadership chord makes the job of the technical crew easier.

“It also gives the team an edge over any other opponent, I say Kudos to the entire Super Eagles team and the Technical crew.”

He added, “Nigeria’s 4th AFCON title is already in the Bag. Congratulations Nigeria, Congratulations Super Eagles.”
