Tyronne Ebuehi who just returned from a long lay-off due to injury is anticipating a return to the Super Eagles after last appearing two years ago in Nigeria’s 2-0 victory over Iceland in a 2018 FIFA World cup group stage game.
His injury also prevented the FC Twente right-back from featuring for the National team in the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.
The 24-year-old is now back to full fitness and is now eager to return to football and prove himself at his new club Twente.
He told BBC sports that “I can’t thank the Nigerian fans enough. I don’t often check my social media messages but once in a while I do and I see some amazing and incredible messages from the fans.
“So many people praying and wishing me well despite being away for two years. I will continue to be grateful for the support I get”
However, the Super Eagles right-back has shown his excitement about getting back to action for Twente in the Eredivise where he is at on loan from Benfica.
“The last two years have shown me that everything happens for a reason in life”
“This big injury and difficulty with my rehab – I think it’s a big test and God wanted to show how strong I am. I think I have passed that test.
After two years without football, the Nigerian international would be looking to get into action for his new team and also for the national team.
