William Troost-Ekong scores on Bursaspor debut

The Super Eagles defender made a successful bow for Adnan Örnek’s men as they cruised past the English Championship side

William Troost-Ekong made an immediate impression as he opened scoring in Bursaspor’s 3-0 defeat of Leeds United.

The Nigeria international who joined the Turkish Super Lig side from Gent earlier this month, broke the deadlock with a 13th minute goal that proved to be the only difference before half-time.

After the restart, Tomas Necid and Sinan Bakış compounded the woes of the Thomas Christiansen’s men who could not find the back of the net in the entirety of the game.

Bursaspor continue their off-season training in Austria till July 28 before visiting Istanbul Başakşehir on August 12 for their opening fixture of the 2017-18 Turkish Super Lig season.

Thrilled with his goal in his debut game, the 23-year-old defender took to social media to share his excitement.
