[TR Sport] Ebuehi not keen on Super Eagles

share on:

ADO Den Haag’s rising star Tyronne Ebuehi will wait to see if he has a Holland  future, despite pressure from the Nigeria Football Federation to pledge  his international allegiance to Nigeria.

Although the  20-year-old right-back has not yet been capped at any youth level for Holland, he is a highly-regarded prospect in the European nation. And the Dutch FA is said to be pressuring the player to represent Holland.

Ebuehi, who   was born in Holland to a Dutch mother and a Nigerian father,  sensationally turned down a chance to represent Nigeria in their Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier against Algeria in Uyo on November 12.

“I see it as a great honour that I am recognised in my homeland,” the player told his club’s official website after rejecting Rohr’s invite.

 “But at this moment ADO Den Haag requires my full attention, especially now that I have settled in the team.

“Therefore, it seems to me that now does not seem the right time to travel to Nigeria for the match. I want to focus completely on the club, but I certainly do not rule out that I will honour a possible next call.”

But Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr said recently   the Storks prized defender would   honour future  invite to play for the Super Eagles, saying  his parents had promised him that he would play for Nigeria.

Rohr badly needs a natural right- back after his experiment with Leicester City-bound Wilfred Ndidi and Kenneth Omeruo in the role against Zambia and Algeria respectively almost backfired.

However, reports  have claimed  the player is working hard  to  improve his game to enable him to force his way into the senior Dutch national team (Orange) like PSV Eindhoven duo    Joshua Brenet (22) and Bart Ramselaar (20).

With Holland boasting struggling  Manchester United centre-back Daley Blind as the only reliable right-back available to Orange manager Danny Blind (Daley father), Ebuehi stands a reasonable a chance of getting a call up if he works hard.

Our correspondent learnt that the player could however  honour  the invite to play  for the Eagles if the conditions are right and assured of a role in the team.

Spokesman for the NFF Ademola Olajire, who confirmed the federation had been working behind the scenes to convince Ebuehi to play for Nigeria, said  Rohr   believes  in the player.

 “It’s Ebuehi who  will decide the country he wants to play for,” Olajire told our correspondent on the telephone.

“According to FIFA regulation, no FA can force any player to play for a particular country.

“Ebuehi will decide the country he wants to play for and I believe he will play for Nigeria.”
