Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong has expressed delight after kicking off his league season with a goal for Turkish side Bursaspor in their Super Liga clash with Fenerbahce.

Although Bursaspor lost the match 2-1, Troost-Ekong insisted that his season would be a positive one.

He found the bag of the net via a header in the 16th minute, but the Turkish giants Fenerbahce rallied to score two goals.

“Happy to score my first goal of the season tonight against Fenerbahce. Thought we deserved more but we will keep fighting. This one is for you my boy,” he said via twitter.

Abdullahi Shehu and Paschal Onyedika were included in the squad that travelled to face the Yellow Canaries.

They will hope to bounce back from the defeat next time out when they tackle Kayserispor on Saturday 18th.
