Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong was impressive for Udinese who beat Sudtirol in the Coppa Italia on Sunday.
The former Bursaspor centre-back played at the heart of the defence line for Udinese.
Kevin Lasagna’s opener was cancelled out by Tomasso Morrosini before Rolando Mandragora registered a brace for the hosts who won 3-1.
William Troost-Ekong represent Nigeria’s U-23s at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics while also earning caps at last year’s Russia World Cup tournament with the senior national team.
Dordrecht, FK Haugesund and KAA Gent have all benefited from the qualities of the never-say-die defender as he continues to take his career to an outstanding level. He has become an indispensable part of the national team.
He was a member of the Super Eagles team that won Bronze at 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
