Paris - Elderson Echiejile played in a big part in Monaco's
1-0 win over Arsenal in the Emirates Cup on Sunday, and the player was thrilled
at the outcome, KickOff Nigeria reports.
"Emirates Cup was great. Two games," the defender
tweeted soon after.
A source close to Echiejile said the victory would be a
confidence booster ahead of the new league season.
"Some of the Monaco players have not played in the
Champions League before and this game was good preparation for them.”
Echiejile was dropped from the Nigeria squad to the 2014
FIFA World Cup with just few days to the kickoff of the tournament, and was
consequently replaced with Ejike Uzoenyi.
