‘Absolute honour to lead the boys out’ – Troost-Ekong elated to captain Watford against Wolves

Nigeria international William Troost-Ekong has revealed his delight at captaining Watford during their Premier League match against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

The 28-year-old defender, who also captains the Super Eagles, was handed the armband by Watford manager Xisco Munoz as the team suffered a 2-0 defeat at Vicarage Road.

It was the away team, who played a more improved game in the second half and managed to secure maximum points courtesy of an own goal from Francisco Sierralata in the 74th minute and Hwang Hee-chan in the 83rd minute.

Despite suffering defeat in the game, Troost-Ekong has promised to do his best in future matches when given the opportunity.
