First goal for Bursaspor excites Troost-Ekong

The Nigeria international registered his maiden goal for the Green Crocodiles in the Turkish topflight and the defender is thrilled with the feat

William Troost-Ekong is delighted with his first goal for Bursaspor as they coasted to a 4-2 victory over Yeni Malatyaspor in Saturday’s Turkish Super Lig encounter.

The defender got the curtain raiser in the 12th minutes to help Paul Le Guen’s men get to a flying start in the game.

Pablo Martin Batalla increased the tally while DR Congo’s Jires Kembo-Ekoko and Bogdan Stancu’s goals took the game beyond their hosts.

A belated attempt to fight back from Khalid Boutaib and Emanuel Dening proved futile as Bursaspor cruised to victory in the challenge.
