Super Eagles duo of Emmanuel Dennis and Troost-Ekong tasted another defeat with Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Nigerian internationals were on from the start as Watford suffered a 1-0 defeat to Leeds United at the Elland Road.
With Oghenekaro Etebo missing due to injury, Ekong and Dennis played all 90 minutes and failed to rescue the team from defeat.
The Hornets struggled during the match to maintain a strong presence in the attacking phase of the pitch, and they were punished by Diego Llorente’s first-half tap-in.
It was their fourth defeat out of seven-game, and manager Munos Xisco said he’s disappointed with the performance he saw from the players.
“I’m disappointed with our first half because we knew our plan for the game. We can only say to keep working every day. All the points this season are important. You need a very good performance and consistent performance, or you won’t take the points.” He said.
