Nigeria defender, William Troost-Ekong is a very happy man after Udinese ended the 2019/20 Serie A season with an away win over Sassuolo on Sunday, bolstering the team’s overall performance, Completesports.com reports.
The Super Eagles central defender was a rock in the heart of defence as Udinese beat Sassuolo 1-0 with a goal from attacker, Stefano Okaka in the 53rd minute.
Sassuolo had many scoring opportunities at the Mapei Stadium but goalkeeper, Juan Musso’s heroics, Troost-Ekong, the offside flag and the woodwork saw Udinese win 1-0.
Troost-Ekong led in interceptions and clearances as Udinese won in style. After the triumph over Sassuolo, Udinese ended the season in the 13th position on 45 points.
The Nigeria international thereafter took to the Social Media to talk up the way the team finished.
“+3 , Good Guys! We end the season in the right way.
“14 out of 38 games without conceding record of the @SerieA 2019/2020,” he posted on his verified Twitter Instagram platforms.
The game was Troost-Ekong’s 30th in the Serie this season and he featured for 90 minutes. The 26-year-old made 29 starts for the Little Zebras in the league.
