    Kudos to our vice captain for reaching this unique milestone of 50th cap but why was it not celebrated or mentioned by the NFF as a way of recognising and motivating him and other upcoming players?
    The NFF should not let occasions like this pass bye in the near future.

    I was there for Troost-Ekong when it started all the way from the Chad game where he played alongside his solid rock partner Leon Balogun under Stephen Keshi’s reign as the Super Eagles boss. Congrats @50 Caps for Ekong.Hope he reaches 100 Caps at most for such a fine player whose involvement at the 2016 Rio Olympic games was helpful to Samson Siasia led Dream Team side which also has Oghenekaro Etebo and the likes in the mix.God Bless Ekong, God Bless Nigeria, God Bless Super Eagles.Bravo Big Brother who is serving his fatherland.
