    Deserved win for Empoli. Ebuehi put in a good shift, running up and down the right flank. Created a chance with a cross into the box, which was wasted by the striker. Naija boys doing it in Italy. Ride on lad.

     
    • Ebuehi did well in the match and his pace and penetrating runs where clear for all to see……Empoli fought hard for the win and They got it…… Ebuehi still need to add some weight and muscles to become a standard African player…….his lanky nature is an advantage to his opponents…… Maybe that is why he has not been utilized to the fullest in SE…….We need to see more of him in SE from now on…… Ebuehi is playing regularly for a Top 5 league club so he should be starting games for SE except Aina is fit because they both play at the same level of football……I don’t want to see Ebuehi been benched or dropped for Mushroom league players again in SE.
