Super Eagles right back, Tyronne Ebuehi, suffered a relapse on his hamstring during ADO Den Haag warm-up prior to their clash against Excelsior at the Van Donge and De Roo Stadium on Friday night, reports Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The 21-year-old defender was named in his side’s starting line-up for the game but was replaced before the start of the game by Hennos Asmelash, according to a tweeet onn the official handle of ADO Den Haag.
“Yet another change, Ebuehi is not fit to play in warm-up and will be replaced by Asmelash,” the tweet revealed.
