Super Eagles Defender Troost-Ekong Delighted To Score Against Fenerbahce

Nigeria international William Troost-Ekong has expressed his happiness after opening his season's goal account for Turkish club, Bursaspor in yesterday's 2-1 league loss to Fenerbahce.

The Super Eagles defender rose highest to nod home the opening goal of the pulsating clash, his third goal in the colours of Bursaspor after profiting from a corner kick situation barely 16 minutes into the game.
Goals from the opposition's Giuliano and Souza eventually ensured the Green Crocodiles left the ülker Stadyumu empty handed but the 24-year-old is optimistic the team will not be deterred by the early setback.

"Happy to score my first goal of the season tonight against Fenerbahce. Thought we deserved more but we will keep fighting. This one is for you my boy 👶🏻❤️ #Bursaspor #TexasliEkong", he wrote on his twitter handle.

Neither of his compatriots, Abdullahi Shehu and Paschal Onyedika were included in the squad that travelled to face the Yellow Canaries.

They will hope to bounce back from the defeat next time out when they tackle Kayserispor on Saturday 18th.
