Troost-Ekong Injury A Blow To Super Eagles Defence

The defender was removed from Thursday’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture on a stretcher after intercepting a pass 10 minutes from time. William Troost-Ekong was later replaced by defender Kenneth Omeruo. The Watford centre-back is now facing a race to recover before their next game which is against Sao Tome and Principe on Monday.

Troost-Ekong took to his Twitter handle and tweeted: “First game & first win to set us off on the new AFCON 2023 campaign. Thanks for the messages. I will be back soon.” It was a good start to the Afcon campaign but fans have been criticizing their performance saying they could have done better.
