“We had a few players making their debuts at AFCON including Maduka, who is a Watford player now,” Troost-Ekong told Watford’s official website.

“I think he’s been very consistent since he came in, which can be quite rare for a young goalkeeper. I remember his first game where he made his debut against Brazil in Singapore, in a friendly game two years ago, and ever since he has been very consistent.

“He is always coming for the ball, talks a lot during the game and is reliable which is the main thing you want from someone behind you. He is a calming presence to our team and I’m really comfortable playing with him. I think he’s enjoying the opportunity to step up and secure his place as the No.1 for Nigeria.”
