Super Eagles captain William Troost-Ekong has been named Player of the Tournament following his display for Nigeria in the 2023 African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.


Ekong set a record as the highest-scoring Nigerian defender in the history of the Africa Cup of Nations after his header in the 38th minute put Nigeria ahead in the 2023 final against host Ivory Coast on Sunday night.


The defender had in the semi-final victory against South Africa equaled late Stephen Keshi’s record of four goals, when he scored a penalty.
