    Am so happy for Tyronne Ebuehi. He played his way back to fitness in the last 2 games featuring close to 75minutes each but today shows he’s fully fit now. He played 90 minutes. I wish Rohr invites him to battle that RB role with AINA. Awaziem might be too rough for the pacy and tireless Algerians. They need the technicality of a player like Ebuehi to calm them down just like he did to Di Maria..lol. We must beat those Algerians well this time oo

    Rohr should call up Ebuehi immediately for inclusion from the standby players…

  • Nice one Ebuehi. If ehizibuie decides not to play for the Super eagles we still have you at RB. You have already featured in a world cup match which means you have more experience than Kingsley. Just keep working on your ball delivery and crosses and you will be BACK in the super eagles team.
    Carry on

    • Tyrone Ebuehi is a good crossed, I may even say better than any RB we have.

    Tyronne has showed he is a fighter. To come out of such long time injury lay off and get on straight to be a regular is no joke. I pray on Rohr to just consider him to replace Ndidi for the coming friendlies, as that’s just gonna do his already soaring confidence a massive boost.

    Ebuehi is back playing regularly. Praises to the heavens. There is still a place for him in the Super Eagles for sure. The kid is class.

    K.Ehizibue started today’s game for Koln to show he’s fully fit. I wonder why he was dropped. Is it Visa issues? Has he changed his mind towards playing for Nigeria? Or He just wants to focus on Club football? This are begging questions left for Rohr and NFF

      He’s yet to get his Nigerian Passport

      Guy na passpot isue make d guy drop. Same isue with ejiara. The nigerian embassy in diaspora doesnt have booklets at the moment. Bcos of coro

  • The only issue I have with tyronne is his crosses are mostly inaccurate. His defensive abilities are ok (apart from that clumsy tackle at the world cup). Then he has the pace to play as a wing back but he needs to deliver accurate crosses and know when to cut in attimes. If he can work on this part of his game, I believe he will go far.
