Troost-Ekong to undergo Minor Surgery


Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong will undergo minor surgery in Finland this week for an injury he picked up at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Troost-Ekong sustained the injury during Nigeria’s second group game against hosts Cote d’Ivoire.

The 30-year-old scored the winning goal for the Super Eagles from the spot in the encounter.

The centre-back missed the Super Eagles’ following game against the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau.

Troost-Ekong went on to play every minute of the Super Eagles remaining games in the competition.

The former Watford player scored three goals for the three-time African champions at the AFCON 2023 finals.

He was duly named Player of the Tournament.

Troost-Ekong is expected to return to play for Greek side PAOK towards the end of the season.
