Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong has been rewarded for his strong performance for Belgian side Gent with a spot in the team of the week after the latest round of games in Belgium.
His Nigerian counterpart at the club Samuel Kalu was also nominated in the list compiled by Voetbalkrant following the penultimate round of games in the play-offs.
The duo were instrumental in the club’s 5-2 win over Zulte- Waregem with Kalu scoring once and providing two assists in the five goals they put past Zulte-Waregem.
Ekong helped Gent defence curtail the threats of feared Zulte-Waregem attack duo of Mbaye Leye and Sander Coopman during the course of the game despite conceding twice.
They were not the only players of Gent in the team of the week as Yuya Kubo and goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic were also nominated in the list of the top players of the week in Belgium.
