Ebuehi gets a late call up to Nigeria squad

Tyronne Ebuehi has been called up to the Nigeria squad to face Brazil at the National Stadium, Singapore, on October 13.

The 23-year-old replaces Kenneth Omeruo, who got injured while on club duty with Leganes in La Liga.

Ebuehi makes a return to the Super Eagles fold for the first time since the 2018 Fifa World Cup.

He joined Portuguese giants Benfica from Dutch club ADO Den Haag ahead of the 2018-19 season, but missed the whole campaign after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury in pre-season.

The Haarlem-born player was an unused substitute in the Eagles 5-0 bashing of Sporting Lisbon in the Portuguese Super Cup.

Ebuehi made his debut for Nigeria in a friendly with Togo in June 2017, and has gone on to make eight appearances.
