William Ekong rejoins training ahead of crucial World Cup qualifiers

Posted : 09 May 2024

Nigeria received a boost recently with the return of William Troost-Ekong to training at PAOK Saloniki after undergoing surgery following his remarkable performance at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).


Despite sustaining a leg injury during AFCON, Ekong displayed remarkable resilience and determination, which ultimately earned him the coveted title of the tournament's Most Valuable Player (MVP).


Ekong's road to recovery was not easy, as it involved undergoing surgery in Finland and undergoing a period of rehabilitation in London before finally resuming training with his club in Greece.


Now back in training, Ekong is expected to feature in PAOK's remaining league matches as he aims to regain match fitness ahead of Nigeria's crucial World Cup qualifiers.


The defender expressed his admiration for the new Super Eagles coach, Finidi George, praising him for his humility and the impressive achievements he has already accomplished in his career.


With Ekong's potential return to the squad, Nigeria is hopeful of securing vital victories in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic, which are crucial for their chances of qualification.


In addition to his on-field contributions, Ekong is also making an impact off the pitch with the launch of his charitable foundation, aimed at inspiring and creating opportunities for the next generation of talent in Nigeria.
