Nigerian star, Williams Troost Ekong reacts after scoring first goal for Watford

Share This



William Troost-Ekong has expressed his delight after scoring his first goal for Watford in their 3-2 victory over Coventry City in Saturday’s Championship game.



Just so you know, the Super Eagles defender completed the move to Hornets in the summer from Italian club Udinese and was afforded his fifth appearance at Vicarage Road.

He powered a fine header past goalkeeper Marko Marosi from James Garner’s well-taken corner.

 “James Garner put a fantastic ball in and made it easy, I just had to run on to it,” Troost-Ekong told the club website.

“It was an important moment and set-pieces are so important in this league, you see how they can change games. It’s been going against us so far this season so to score from a set-piece is massive.

“I’m happy I managed to contribute like that today and hopefully we can get some more during the season.”


The Super Eagles defender is happy with his side’s performances in front of goal but wants them to improve on their defence.

“The goals for are really important. We have to do a bit better, we’ve been conceding too many in the last few games but there’s so much we can still improve and I think this team has so much potential,” he continued.

“We just have to keep going and keep working, keep the goalscoring going and hopefully we won’t concede as many goals from set-pieces as we have done.

“The first half we were dominant but just missing a goal. We played well in possession today, we moved the ball better than we did in the previous games and it’s always nice when we score the first goal.

“We lost ourselves for a minute when they got the two goals back, but we showed great character to come out with the three points.”
