Rohr Reveals The identity Of The Good Player Super Eagles Will Miss At AFCON
Benfica defender Tyronne Ebuehi was unfortunate not to be included on the Super Eagles Africa Cup of Nations roster after failing to fully recover from a cruciate ligament injury he suffered in pre-season.

Two other World Cuppers in the shape of Eddy Onazi and Joel Obi have had their own injury problems but manager Gernot Rohr reckons that the former ADO Den Haag star would be missed the most.

Although the German has taken Ola Aina and Abdullahi Shehu, who are both classed as right fullbacks to Egypt, Ebuehi is a cut above the rest and that was epitomized by his performance against Iceland at the World Cup.

''The team is missing a good player, Tyronne Ebuhei, who has been injured for months," Rohr said in a press statement published by filgoal.com.

"The team has a young goalkeeper and two other goalkeepers with good experience and they played well during the last friendly against Senegal," he added.

Ebuehi played for the Super Eagles in all their friendlies before the 2018 World Cup, six in total, and became cap-tied to Nigeria when he made his competitive debut against Iceland on June 22, 2018.
