Tyronne Ebuehi set to reignite Benfica career

10 Jul 2019, 09:55

​Tyronne Ebuehi's career was on an upward spiral until he picked up an unfortunate injury which ruled him out of action for the whole of last season.

The 23-year-old recorded tremendous growth in his career in the last two years. He ignited his international career as he made his debut appearance for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

His fame continued to rise among Nigerians after his wonderful display against Argentina in a friendly encounter prior to the 2018 World Cup.

He went on to feature for the three-time African champions during the World Cup in Russia, making him a substantial member of the Super Eagles.

His development doesn't end there, he surprisingly became a transfer target for Primeira Liga giants Benfica prior to the World Cup.

He reached an agreement with the club and was officially unveiled as Benfica player, a move that was widely applauded by many Super Eagles supporters.

Ebuehi, who was hoping to break into Benfica's starting lineup, suffered a cruciate ligament injury in their pre-season clash with Juventus

The long-term injury prevented him from making his official debut for Benfica as he spent close to 12 months in the recuperating room.

However, the right-back is fully fit and he's ready to challenge for a spot in Benfica's right-back position in the new season.

This will be good news to Gernot Rohr and the Nigeria Football Federation as they can't wait to have the attack-minded fullback in the national team setup.
