Tyronne Ebuehi Will Still Play For Nigeria – Gernot Rohr

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has revealed Tyronne Ebuehi will honour another invitation after he first rejected a chance to play against Algeria so as to focus at his Dutch club.

Rohr specially opened up that the 20-year-old ADO Den Haag defender as well as his parents had accepted he should honour the call-up for the Algeria match, but the player’s agent blocked the move.

“He’s a very good, young player, a right back. His agent did not want him to come yet because he is still very young, he has only played four, five games for the first team of Den Haag,” Rohr narrated.

“His agent believes that it’s too early for him to play for Nigeria, that he should first stablise at his club.

“But the player wants to come and next time, he will come.

“He said yes he will play for Nigeria at first, but then the agent came into the picture and made some observations.

I also spoke to his parents and they also wanted him to come too.”
