Ebuehi: Dumping Netherlands for Nigeria my best football career decision thus far

Benfica new boy Tyronne Ebuehi is very pleased to have chosen Nigeria ahead of his country of birth, Netherlands that he called the decision the best of his career yet.

Tyronne Ebuehi who has been on the winning team in both games he had played for his new club Benfica said he has no regret whatsoever dumping Netherlands for Nigeria.

“There’s absolutely no regrets, it was a big choice and one I can happily live with,” Ebuehi told BBC Sport.

“My father was born in Nigeria and he is from Benin City, which makes me half Nigerian. My mother is from Holland, so I’m half Nigerian and half Dutch.

“Nigeria is one of the biggest football countries in Africa. I think it was a great opportunity for me to play for Nigeria.

“So I’m happy that I made this decision. I think it’s the best decision I have made in my football career.”

Tyronne Ebuehi who was part of the Super Eagles squad to Russia, he has played 8 International games for Nigeria including an impressive 45 minutes against Argentina in November 2017.
