Super Eagles and Bursaspor central defender William Troost-Ekong has taken to the social media to kick start his involvement with Common Goal.
Common Goal tackle some of the toughest social issues of our time — ranging from HIV/AIDS to gender inequality and youth unemployment.
In March 2018, Ekong became the 43rd member of Common Goal, donating one percent of his salary to high impact football-for-good organisations around the world.
Common Goal is a movement powered by players and managers.
Already, more than 40 players and managers have allocated over 400,000 euros to football-for-good organisations in six months since it started with Mata.
“I’m very excited to kick off this fundraiser for Common Goal. My team is raising money for football for good organisations that provide inclusive and quality education to all. Donate to join my team and let’s reach the goal,” Ekong wrote via his official twitter handle @WTroostEkong.
“We have something extra special for everyone who is joining my team! If you donate to my fundraiser, you will be entered to win a Nigerian national team jersey signed by me! Make sure to donate and spread the word.”
Ekong will make his FIFA World Cup debut in the 2018 edition of the competition in Russia.
