Reports exclusively gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com has it that Tyronne Ebuehi might not honour the invitation to the Nigeria senior national team, due to issues bothering on documentation.

Ebuehi as exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com is in the list of players, that the coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has penciled down for the November 12 qualifiers against Algeria in Uyo.

The ADO Den Haag defender has made five league appearances this season with a goal to his name, in what is his third full season in the Eredivisie.

However the right full back, who was born and brought up in the Netherlands could miss out on the game as he is yet to be issued a Nigerian passport, by the authorities.

Although he qualifies to represent Nigeria through his parents, the 20 year old presently holds only a Dutch passport and by rules, he need to be in possession of a Nigerian passport for him to be eligible to play for the West Africans.

” Ebuehi is in the list but he might not make it for the game against Algeria, unless he gets a Nigerian passport before next month. For now he is not in possession of one and he needs it to play for Nigeria” Super Eagles insider @muyiwalawal told Owngoalnigeria.com.
