Ex-Gronigen defender William Troost-Ekong has thanked coach Stephen Keshi for keeping faith in him.
Troost-Ekong was a standout performer in the 2-0 win against Chad and he was quick to thank his teammates for the making his debut one of the proudest moments of his career.
"Special thanks to my teammates, we fought together and to the Big Boss Keshi for believing in me," Troost-Ekong told completesportsnigeria.com.
"Also I’m grateful to God for my full international debut, I’m very happy with the maximum points for the team and I must admit playing for Nigeria was one of the proudest moments of the career. I hope the coach will call me whenever he needs me and I will always come to do my best for Nigeria."
Troost-Ekong who is currently holidaying in Marrakech, Morocco will join a new club as his current deal with Gronigen was not renewed.
