Nigeria’s national football team, the Super Eagles, have received encouraging news ahead of their forthcoming friendly matches against Poland and Serbia, as right-back Tyronne Ebuehi has resumed training following a recent injury setback. The 22-year-old player sustained a groin injury while playing for his Dutch club ADO Den Haag in a recent Eredivisie encounter against NAC Breda.
ADO Den Haag confirmed the injury earlier in the week, refraining from specifying the expected duration of Ebuehi’s absence from the field. However, in a positive development, a short video posted by the club on their official website showcased Ebuehi participating in training alongside his teammates ahead of their upcoming clash against Excelsior on Saturday.
The return of Ebuehi to the training ground serves as a significant boost for Nigeria’s head coach, Gernot Rohr, as he prepares the squad for a tune-up match against Poland on March 23rd in Warsaw, followed by a face-off with Serbia four days later in London.
The young defender, who has amassed 26 appearances for ADO Den Haag in the Eredivisie this season, made his debut for the Nigerian national team in a memorable international friendly against Argentina last November. Ebuehi’s introduction into the game as a second-half substitute contributed to Nigeria’s remarkable comeback from a two-goal deficit, securing a 4-2 victory.
