Invited Super Eagles star major doubt for clash against Ghana

William Troost-Ekong was one of the Super Eagles’ 30-man provisional squad to face Ghana at the World Cup playoffs.

Watford manager, Roy Hodgson has ruled William Troost Ekong out for the “foreseeable future” after the defender strained his muscle.

Hodgson announced on Friday ahead of the Hornets’ game against Arsenal at Vicarage Road.

“It’s a muscle strain, the same with Troost-Ekong,” said Hodgson of Senegal star, Ismaila Sarr.

“It’s going to keep them both out of the equation for the foreseeable future, but I don’t know how long exactly.

“It’s not a minor thing, it’s not a knock, both have muscle strains, and that can take anything from a week to four weeks to recover from.”

Nigeria earlier announced Troost-Ekong, a mainstay of the team and assistant captain of the Super Eagles as one of the invited players.

Should he be declared missing out of the game as a result of the injury, Alanyaspor’s Chidozie Awaziem has been listed as the standby defender on the provisional squad.
