Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr has revealed his eagerness to see Dutch-Nigerian full back Tyrone Ebuehi play for Nigeria as soon as possible.
Ebuehi was invited for the Super Eagles last competitive game against Algeria, but the 20 year old opt to remain with his team ADO Den Haag to establish himself in the team.
However in a chat with highly respected Nigerian journalist Osasu Obayiuwana Rohr said, he has a promise from the right back that he is now willing to play for Nigeria if called up.
Since taking over as coach of the Super Eagles, Rohr has used four players at right back in three games as coach of the team, with three of the four players played out of position to cover up for the lack of a proper right back.
Rohr has been searching for credible options in the right full back role of the Super Eagles, a situation he hope to fix with Ebuehi.
” I hope that Tyrone Ebuehi will be ready for the next Super Eagles game we play. We need a good right back”, he told Osasu in Gabon where he is working as a pundit in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
