Nigerian defender William Troost-Ekong played a key role for Italian outfit Udinese as they secured a 1-0 victory in their final game of the season against Sassuolo at the Mapei stadium on Sunday.

Making his 30th Serie A appearance for Luca Gotti’s effervescent side, the Super Eagles vice-captain started the match, as he formed a three-man defence along with Samir and Sebastien De Maio.

Troost-Ekong featured for the entire duration of the match, helping his team keep a clean sheet with four clearances, two interceptions, and a 76% passing accuracy.

Nigerian born Italian attacker Stefan Okaka scored the only goal of the match in the 53rd minute after Kevin Lasagna provided the assist to ensure Udinese clinched all three points.

There are very few things in life that make me happy, but talking and writing Sports has to be at the top. I honed my broadcasting skills at the University of Lagos Radio Station and have free-lanced for platforms like Top Radio and Superscreen TV amongst others. Deji loves running commentaries on Football matches and Athletics, and is now a Junior Sports Writer at Making of Champions. He hopes to become a Sports Agent in the future.
