Right Back Crisis – Shehu Abdullahi Joins Ebuehi On Treatment Table Ahead AFCON 2019 Qualifiers


The Super Eagles of Nigeria are most likely going to be without their first choice options at right full back when they take on Seychelles in the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers.


Already Tyronne Ebuehi has been ruled out of the game after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament at his new club Benfica and he could be out for a minimum of six months. It effectively rules him out of the Seychelles game on the 7th of September.

Shehu Abdullahi the other option available to coach Gernot Rohr is a major doubt for the clash as well with reports indicating that he is set to be out for the next two weeks.

Abdullahi is nursing what is viewed as a slight injury by his Turkish side Bursaspor but the length of time he will be needing to recover means he is facing a race to be fit for the game.

Young Chelsea defender Ola Aina is another option at right back but he has not been getting game time at Chelsea in pre season friendly, same as Musa Muhammed who is presently searching for a new club following his exit from Istanbul Basaksehir of Turkey.
