Nigeria vs Ghana: Super Eagles receive major boost ahead of World Cup playoffs

Nigeria are now likely to have national team captain, William Troost-Ekong, available for their 2022 World Cup playoffs against Ghana this month.

This follows an update released by his club Watford on Wednesday.

The Premier League outfit in a statement on their website, confirmed Troost-Ekong has returned to full training.

A groin problem has ruled the Nigerian centre back and although he is back with the squad, the game against Wolves on Thursday might be too early for him.

“William Troost-Ekong makes his return to full training today following a minor groin problem, but tomorrow’s Molineux encounter is likely to come too soon for the Nigeria captain,” the statement read.

Troost-Ekong’s only game for the Hornets this year was against Tottenham Hotspur on New Year’s Day, before he joined up with the Eagles for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Since his return to the UK, he has been an unused substitute against Burnley, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace.

This news is a big boost for coach Augustine Eguavoen ahead of this month’s 2022 Fifa World Cup qualification play-off against Ghana.
