Serie A: Ebuehi Subbed On In Lazio, Empoli’s Four-Goal Thriller

Super Eagles defender, Tyronne Ebuehi came on as a substitute in Empoli’s four-goal thriller against Lazio in Sunday’s Serie A game.

The Nigerian international, who was making seventh appearance, has bagged one assist.

Felipe Anderson managed to put Lazio ahead after less than 90 seconds after heading home a Luis Alberto corner, giving the home side an early advantage.

Mattia Zaccagni doubled the Biancocelesti’s lead in the 54th minute from only six yards out after a beautiful assist from Felipe Anderson, who deftly wriggled into the box before laying off a perfectly weighted pass to the Italian winger.

The second half continued to flow in the favour of Lazio, although Empoli were starting to push as the match drew on. Their efforts were rewarded in the 84th minute, when a quick counter-attack was finished off by Francesco Caputo, clawing one back for the away side.

This gave Empoli belief as the match started to enter it’s final stages. In the dying seconds of the match, with only a minute on the clock, a piece of poor defending allowed Razvan Marin to take an uncontested shot from outside the box, which he carefully placed in the top corner of Ivan Provedel’s net, drawing the Tuscans level.

  • It is time to start experimenting Ebuehi as a centre back option for the Super Eagles. I think he has lost a lot of the gloss, grace and guile of a flamboyant fullback that he showed in the lead up to the Russia 2018 World Cup.

    I think Ekong should be granted a brief sabbatical leave from the Super Eagles starting 11 for a while.
