 Stoke City Happy With Etebo's AFCON Display; Tipping Number 8 To Start Vs Algeria Stoke City assistant manager Paul Hart revealed to the club's official site that the Potters coaching crew are happy with Etebo's performances at the ongoing AFCON tournament after reaching the semi-final round of the competition.

Stoke City are tipping the number 8 for club and country to start when the Super Eagles face Algeria on Sunday, July 14.

Hart admitted it's hard not having him around for the club's pre-season tour as he is an integral part of the squad.

''It’s a double-edged sword really, because we are incredibly proud of him and what he is achieving, but it would be great to have him back,'' Hart said.

''We are so pleased for Peter though, he is a great lad and he will be back as soon as he possibly can.

''We will most definitely be looking after him and managing him correctly when it is he does come back.''

Etebo is the only Super Eagles player who has started and gone the distance in all the matches played by Gernot Rohr's men in Egypt.
