    “…The 27-year-old has made 24 league appearances for Watford this season…”

    24 out of a possible 32 in a heavily rotated squad….But some hatred filled impostors who think they are smart tell us Ekong is a benchwarmer. LMAO. I wonder which benchwarmer gets to play 75% of possible matches, most times as a starter and playing full 90mins.

    Troost is becoming like a “hitman man machinery” you employ to do a hit. He comes and does a perfect job. Hopefully he helps take Watford back to the premiership. That would definitely be an amazing achievement. God bless Troost Ekong n all other deserving SE players.

  • Kelechi iheanacho scores again for Leicester. Its 1-0 against Sheffield utd. Hope Leicester can score another goal to seal the win. But kelechi is really showing his worth in the premiership. I remember when he scored his first goal this season in the premiership and I said he has silenced his critics, many people laughed at my comments because he had just scored a single goal in the premier league but everyone knows that you have to first count 1, before moving to 2, 3 and more. Kelechi is a player whose confidence comes the more he plays and as soon as he starts scoring goals he wants to score more. Now that he is getting more playing time the goals are pouring in even though he isn’t a natural striker. This is good for him, Leicester and the Super Eagles.

  • Kelechi scores his second of the match and its 3-0 to Leicester. Congratulations to kelechi!

  • ITS A KELECHI IHEANACHO HATTHRICK!!!!!. Kelechi joins an exclusive squad of Nigerian players who have scored hattricks in the premiership. This list includes kanu nwankwo, aiyegbeni yakubu and osaze odemwingie (if im not mistaken). Congratulations once again kelechi. Thanks for proving your doubters wrong!!!

    …if we can have a vastly improved William Troost-Ekong (mostly regarding positional play) then he is an asset anyday… I pray Watford gets promoted and he remains with them in Premiership… that’s where he belongs!

  • I wish all Nigerian stars the very best and injury free till they come for the double header. Most importantly, they should not forget their scoring boots in their respective clubs. Good to see kelechi hits hatrick…
