Omeruo: I’m Enjoying Partnership With Troost-Ekong

Kenneth Omeruo says he is enjoying his partnership with William Troost-Ekong at the heart of the Super Eagles defence, reports Completesports.com.

Omeruo and Troost-Ekong combined to shutout Mohamed Salah and his Egytian teammates in Nigeria’s opening game on Tuesday.

“It was easy, he is someone I have played with a couple of times,” the defender told NFF TV.

  • At the beginning of this tournament I had my doubt about omeruo starting for us am glad he proved me wrong

  • Omeruo is one of the best defenders Nigeria has ever hard just a pity how the guy couldn’t get a big club when he was much younger.

    AFcon 2013 against ivory coast. Omeruo, yobo and Onanzi neutralize, yhayah, drogber,solomon and Javinho.
    His combo with Yobo was something else that day.

      What do you mean he couldn’t get a big club… He was signed straight by Chelsea FC even though he was never alollowed any official game for them…

    What a game it will be against Sudan.

  • My problem is both of them are not fast defenders. The advantage of their pairing is Ndidi who plays in front of them.
