Must read

FINLAND – In a significant development for Nigerian football, Super Eagles’ captain William Troost-Ekong underwent a successful surgery in Finland on Tuesday, February 28, 2024, night.

The surgery was necessitated by a hamstring injury Troost-Ekong sustained during Nigeria’s match against hosts, Cote d’Ivoire, at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

According to sources, the Super Eagles captain went to repair a ruptured biceps femoris in his right leg.

Despite the setback, Troost-Ekong displayed remarkable resilience and dedication to his team.

The centre-back played in six out of the Super Eagles’ seven games at the tournament in Cote d’Ivoire, contributing significantly to Nigeria’s journey to a second-place finish.

His exceptional performance included scoring three goals, a feat that not only underscored his pivotal role in the team but also earned him the title of Player of the Tournament.

Troost-Ekong’s achievement has placed him in the annals of AFCON history as the highest scoring defender, a testament to his defensive prowess and unexpected offensive contributions.

His ability to balance defensive duties with goal-scoring opportunities has been instrumental in Nigeria’s recent successes on the continental stage.

The timeline for Troost-Ekong’s return to action is projected towards the end of the season, giving him ample time for rehabilitation and ensuring he returns to the pitch in optimal condition.

His recovery will be closely monitored by both his club and the Nigerian national team, who are eager to have their vice-captain back in action.

Troost-Ekong’s contributions to the Super Eagles and his recent accolades have not only elevated his status among the defenders in international football but have also brought pride to Nigerian football.

As he recuperates, fans and teammates alike await his return, hoping for his swift and complete recovery.
