Defender William Troost Ekong has won the Man of The Match award in Nigeria's 1-0 victory over Tunisia at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations third place match.
Odion Ighalo's 3rd minute goal was all the Super Eagles needed to win an 8th bronze medal in their AFCON history.
Ekong will find a relief in the feat after he conceded an own goal in Nigeria’s 2-1 semifinal defeat to the Desert Foxes of Algeria on Sunday.
He scored his first AFCON goal in Nigeria's 2-1 victory over South Africa in the quarter final.
In seven matches the Super Eagles played in Egypt, Troost-Ekong is the fifth Super Eagles player to win the award at the 2019 AFCON finals.
Wilfred Ndidi, Kenneth Omeruo, Odion Ighalo and Samuel Chukwueze are the other Super Eagles players who scoped the award in the competition.
