As exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com on the 20th of October 2016, Dutch born Nigerian right full back has been called up to the Super Eagles alongside Israeli based midfielder John Ogu.
Manager Gernot Rohr has confirmed the inclusion of new players for the tie against Algeria in the list which will be released later today by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The non inclusion of Ogu in the previous list released by the coach has lead to uproar due to his fine form for Israeli side Hapoel Be’er Sheva, with Rohr defending his non inclusion but it appears he has had a rethink.
20 year old Ebuehi plays for ADO Den Haag in the Netherlands, where he has made four appearances in the Dutch top flight league with a goal to his name.
Born in the Netherlands to Nigerian parents, his switch won’t pose most of a problem to Nigeria as he is yet to be capped by the Netherlands.
Well informed Super Eagles insider @Muyiwalawal, who has in the past released news on potential call ups to the Nigerian team confirmed to Owngoalnigeria.com in a chat, that John Ogu and Tyrone Ebuehi are guarantee to make the team.
” Some late changes have been done to the list by the Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr. Tyrone Ebuehi and John Ogu are certain to be included in it” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
