Troost-Ekong donates Eagles allowances to Akwa Ibom kids

Super Eagles leader William Troost-Ekong has generously contributed his future camp allowances and match bonuses to support young football enthusiasts in Akwa Ibom.

The 30-year-old PAOK Thessaloniki defender, originally from Akwa Ibom State, shared this noble act on Brila FM recently.


Troost-Ekong, with roots in both The Netherlands and Nigeria, cherishes his connections with the Ibibio community.

His philanthropic gesture reflects his gratitude to the society that shaped his father and nurtured his own journey.

Recognized as a prominent ambassador by Akwa Ibom locals, Troost-Ekong’s stellar performances for the Eagles have earned him widespread acclaim.

His leadership during the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, where he excelled as both captain and top scorer for Nigeria despite the team’s loss in the final, further solidified his standing.

Acknowledging his achievements, Governor Umo Eno of Akwa Ibom State honored Troost-Ekong for his outstanding contributions to the national team.

During a reception at the Government House in Uyo, Troost-Ekong presented an Eagles jersey to the Governor as a gesture of appreciation for the state’s continuous support.

Troost-Ekong’s international journey showcases his commitment to Nigeria. Although eligible to represent the Dutch national team due to his Dutch mother, he opted to play for Nigeria.

Since his debut in 2015, he has earned 71 caps and scored seven goals, demonstrating his dedication and passion for representing his country on the global stage.
