Super Eagles handler, Gernot Rohr has stated that he was not surprised at the performance of ADO Den Haag Dutch-Nigerian full back, Tyronne Ebuehi against Argentina in the international friendly in Russia on Tuesday.
Ebuehi put up an impressive display for Nigeria in the 4-2 win over Argentina after coming on as a substitute for regular right back Shehu Abdullahi with Nigeria trailing the South American giants 1-2.
The Dutch-born defender’s performance down the right pushed Argentina backward, helping the Eagles to find their rhythm and hit three goals that gave them a 4-2 win.
Rohr told reporters of the defender, “We always know what he is capable of doing. He ( Ebuehi) has been with us for some time now, we won’t keep him if we have no faith in his abilities.
“I’m not surprised because I know his qualities and what he can do. He did well in the second half just like goalkeeper Francis Uzoho and Brian Idowu during the game.”
