AFCON 2023: Troost-Ekong 'honored' to be back with Super Eagles


William Troost-Ekong is happy to be back with the Super Eagles after four months.

The star of Greece's PAOK Salonica has not been called up by coach Jose Peceiro since he was included in the squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sao Tome and Principe in September.

However, Troost-Ekong is included in Nigeria's squad for the 2023 AFCON finals.

The 29-year-old joined his teammates on Friday at their training base in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The centre-back expressed his joy at being reunited with his teammates at camp.

“It's an honor to be back with the team for another AFCON. Let's get to work,” he wrote on his X account.

This will be Troost-Ekong's second AFCON appearance after his first appearance at the 2019 Egypt Games, where Nigeria finished third.
