Super Eagles defender pulled from Starting XI after further Injury scare

Super Eagles defender pulled from Starting XI after further Injury scare

Tyronne Ebuehi was named in the Ado Den Haag starting XI on Friday night against Excelsior, but the right back was withdrawn minutes to kick-off as his injury from the week before played up again.

Although his name appeared as a substitute during the game, Ebuehi was not available for selection and his side also went on to win 2-1 away from home.


Subsequently, in its match report the club also explained the decision to pull the Nigeria international out, moments before kick off.

Here’s an excerpt:

Fons Groenendijk knew the necessary personnel problems. Tom Beugelsdijk fell against NAC with a hamstring injury and is provisionally on the side. His place was taken by Nick Kuipers. Danny Bakker was lined up for the suspended Wilfried Kanon, leaving a spot for Donny Gorter in the midfield. Tyronne Ebuehi tried it in the warm-up, but was still injured to play with. Hennos Asmelash was his replacement.

The 22-year-old was invited for the international friendlies against Poland and Serbia, but with the new development, Super Eagles technical Adviser Gernot Rohr might have to make a late decision on the player.
