Nigerian defender William Troost-Ekong scored his first goal of the season as Watford FC smashed Luton 4-0 in the English Championship on Sunday afternoon.
Ekong had a solid and complete game at the back, especially with the return of Captain and defensive partner Craig Cathcart.
The Nigerian kept a clean sheet and got on the score sheet as Watford ended Luton Town’s seven-game Unbeaten league run to put the Hornets within three points of the Playoff spot.
The goals came fast and early as Keinan David got the first goal for Watford in the 3rd minute, and Hassane Camara assisted him.
Luton struggled to respond, and just over 40 minutes later, Ekong doubled the lead for the Hornets and was shown a yellow card for his celebration. The goal saw Slaven Bilic’s side go into the break with the lead.
Watford didn’t take their foot off the throttle, as the second half was more similar. João Pedro made it 3-nil in the 57th minute before Senegalese striker Ismaila Sarr rounded up the scoring to end his 3-game goalless drought.
Samuel Kalu was brought on in the 85th minute for Watford, while Super Eagles goalkeeper Maduka Okoye was an unused substitute.
Ekong’s goal contributes to the incredible form of the Super Eagles players across Europe; Iwobi recorded two assists on Saturday, Awoniyi’s goal against his former side and Ola Aina’s match-of-the-match performance for Torino against Udinese and many more.
