Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has assured ADO Den Haag defender Tyronne Ebuehi that he is still part of his plans despite placing him on standby in the list of players released for the clash against Zambia.
Ebuehi was placed on standby by Rohr, same coach who convinced him to pursue an international career with Nigeria despite his eligibility to represent the Netherlands.
However the 21 year old has been unable to dislodge Shehu Abdullahi as the first choice right full back of the team, and Ola Aina switch of allegiance from England to Nigeria sent Ebuehi further down the pecking order.
Yet to be capped by Nigeria, Rohr told the full back he won’t be in the squad for the game against Zambia before the list was made public, and also explained to him that he is still part of his plans.
Rohr explained to him that he has a very bright future with Nigeria, but for the game against Zambia he won’t be considered due to tactical reasons not made known to this portal.
