Nigeria trio of William Troost Ekong, Isaac Success and Tom Dele Bashiru have gained promotion to the English Premier League from the English Championship with Watford.
Watford on Saturday, April 24, 2021, returned to the English football top flight after Ismaila Sarr’s 11th-minute penalty propelled them to a 1-0 win over Millwall at Vicarage Road.
With two games to the end of the season, Watford occupied the second automatic promotion place with 88 points from 44 games, ten points ahead of third-placed Brentford.
They thus secured immediate promotion to the English Premier League alongside Norwich City after last season’s drop from the top flight.
Watford’s next two games against Brentford and Swansea City will not prevent them from a return to the top flight.
