In a significant blow to fans and teammates, Williams Troost-Ekong, the Super Eagles Captain and 2023 AFCON MVP, will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.



The defender is set to undergo surgery in Finland on Tuesday to address a ruptured biceps femoris in his right leg.


Troost-Ekong initially sustained the hamstring injury during the 2023 AFCON group stage clash against Ivory Coast. Despite the setback, he displayed remarkable resilience by playing through the pain to contribute to Nigeria's journey to the final.


Unfortunately, the toll on his right leg necessitates surgical intervention, marking an end to his season. The upcoming surgery aims to repair the ruptured biceps femoris and facilitate a smooth recovery for the talented player.


As fans and the football community rally behind Troost-Ekong, the focus shifts to his rehabilitation journey and the anticipation of his return to the pitch in the future. The Super Eagles will undoubtedly miss the leadership and prowess of their captain, wishing him a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
