“The unity in the team will make us fantastic,” Etebo tells his club’s official website.

“It’s not an individual game, we have to stick together both on and off the pitch.

“We need the hard work and encouragement of the entire team to win.”

The Olympic Games medalist insists what was most important over the weekend was the three points Stoke City claimed.

“It was most important for the team to win,” he says.

“I scored a vital goal and we kept a clean sheet.

“I thank the team, it was a collective thing as I scored and we defended well to win.”
