Super Eagles’ defender, William Troost-Ekong was in fantastic form as he helped Serie A side Udinese return to winning ways in their 1-0 win over strugglers Chievo Verona, reports.

The 24-year-old continued his trend of starting in all Udinese’ Serie A games as they returned to winning ways, having failed to win any of their opening four league games in 2019.

Lukasz Teodorczyk’s lone strike four minutes from time was all the hosts needed as they recorded just their fifth win of the season to move four points off the relegation zone.

The Nigerian was on for the entire match duration as he helped Udinese to their 5th clean sheet of the season, earning a game rating of 7.3, made 8 clearances, won 7 duels and also made four blocked shots.
