William Troost-Ekong Makes Serie A ‘Team Of The Week’



William Troost-Ekong is one of the players holding down the Super Eagles’ defence as they look to end the 2019 AFCON qualifiers on a high note. So, we can say he’s doing fairly well, especially given that he has just been named in Serie A ‘Team of the Week’, four months after joining Udinese.

Complete Sports reports that the ‘Team of the Week’ was put together by football statistics website, WhoScored, and features players who were at their best in round 12 of the 2018-19 season. Ekong made the team alongside Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.

Although his side lost their match on Sunday, the 25-year-old earned an impressive game rating of 7.8 with two clearances, two blocked shots, one interception and 100% completed tackles.

We hope he brings this same energy to Nigeria’s 2019 AFCON qualifier against South Africa on Saturday, because that match will determine if the Super Eagles will make it to the tournament next year or not.
