Dutch-Nigerian right full back Tyronne Ebuehi could make his return to international football with the senior national team of Nigeria in their dead rubber AFCON 2019 Qualifiers tie against Seychelles, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively report.
Ebuehi suffered ligaments damage few weeks into pre season training with his new team Benfica following his move in the summer from ADO Den Haag after his involvement with Nigeria at the World Cup in Russia.
He was initially feared out of the Africa Cup of Nations next year which Nigeria has qualified for with a game to spare after drawing 1-1 against South Africa in Johannesburg a week ago.
A check on Benfica injury update shows he is progressing nicely and well on course to return to competitive football on the 29th of January, two months before Nigeria’s last AFCON 2019 Qualifiers game against Seychelles.
It also means the 22 year old will no doubt be fully fit for next year Africa Cup of Nations which will take place in July in Cameroon with Nigeria taking part in it for the first time since winning the title in 2013.
