Nigerian head coach, Gernot Rohr, has revealed that his team will miss the services of Benfica defender, Tyronne Ebuehi, at the African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Ebuehi was not included in the Super Eagles list after failing to fully recover from a cruciate ligament injury.
Rohr said that the former ADO Den Haag star would be missed the most.
Ebuehi is rated above the other right backs, Ola Aina and Abdullahi Shehu, who are both in Egypt for the tournament.
“The team is missing a good player, Tyronne Ebuhei, who has been injured for months,”Rohr said at 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
The Dutch-born Ebuehi played for the Super Eagles in all their friendlies before the 2018 World Cup.
