Ekong Passes Zlatan Test, but Udinese lose to late Rebic Strike in Five-goal Thriller


William Troost-Ekong and Udinese suffered a heartbreak defeat in their Serie A tie against AC Milan at the San Siro on Sunday.

Ekong played the entire 90 minutes and could take credit for keeping out Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but it was Ante Rebic, who was the joker.

 

Rebic came off the bench to score a brace, his first in the 48′ and the match winner on 90+3′ with the sides tied at 2-2.

 

The Nigerian Center Half believed they deserved more than they got in the game.

 

“We are happy with the performance but angry because we would have deserved more.

 

“In the last few minutes we were not as focused as we usually are and unfortunately we scored goals.

 

“I think if we play all the games like this we can win many points but we must keep the moment.

 

“Ibrahimovic? He is a very strong player a difficult game but in one on one I think I have held up well. Too bad it didn’t end at best,” Ekong told Udinese Media.
