The surgery, which took place in Finland on Tuesday, February 27th, comes as a result of an injury sustained during the Super Eagles’ second group A game against host nation Ivory Coast.

Troost-Ekong’s injury casts doubt on his availability for the upcoming qualifiers for the 2026 FIFA World Cup scheduled to resume in June. Despite the setback, Troost-Ekong exhibited remarkable leadership, guiding the Super Eagles to the final of the tournament.

Troost-Ekong’s journey from injury to recovery showcases his resilience and dedication to the sport, inspiring fans and teammates alike. As the Super Eagles look ahead to future competitions, the hope remains high for Troost-Ekong’s swift recovery and return to the pitch, ready to continue his remarkable contributions to the team.
