Super Eagles star RULED OUT for season ahead of Nigeria’s friendly against Ghana



"Nigeria drops two places in FIFA's latest ranking."

Super Eagles star Tyronne Ebuehi has been ruled out for the season ahead of Nigeria’s upcoming friendly games against Ghana and Mali in Morocco.

The Nigerian full-back was preparing for the games against the Black Stars and the Eagles after being included in the 26-man list for the friendlies.

However, the former Benfica defender will now miss these ties and joins other Nigerian stars who will be unavailable for national team duty.

Newly invited defender Gabriel Osho and Nottingham Forest striker Taiwo Awoniyi have already withdrawn from the squad after being invited.

Ebuehi’s club, Empoli, confirmed the Nigerian international’s season was all but over after partially damaging his anterior cruciate ligament during their game against Bologna over the weekend.

According to a report by Soccernet, the Italian Serie A club confirmed this development in an official statement released on their website.

“Empoli Football Club announces that the instrumental investigations to which the footballer, Tyronne Ebuehi, who came out during Friday’s match with Bologna, was subjected, have highlighted the partial injury of the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee.”

Finidi George, the stand-in coach for the Super Eagles, will need to call up a replacement for Tyronne Ebuehi, who has been ruled out due to injury.

This replacement will need to be finalized before all the players arrive at the training camp.

Additionally, Victor Osimhen is also a doubt for the upcoming friendlies, as he was left on the bench for Napoli’s recent match against Inter Milan. His availability for the games against Ghana and Mali is uncertain.

Xavi fires back at Enrique for claiming PSG would’ve won without red card



Xavi fires back at Enrique for claiming PSG would've won without red card

“Luis Enrique said that even without the red card PSG would have won anyway and he hopes you will be the coach of Barca for many years, what do you say?” Xavi was asked.

The Barca boss replied in a fiery tone, “I say NO to both.”

Xavi’s disagreement with Enrique’s celebration of PSG’s victory may indicate his dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs at Barcelona, potentially hinting at a departure this summer.

Enrique’s exuberant reaction to PSG’s win, followed by comments boasting about his team’s superiority, contrasts with Xavi’s perspective and may suggest a difference in their visions for the club.

Despite PSG’s convincing win, it’s important to remember that Barcelona had a strong start in the match, leading by two goals at one point.

However, a pivotal moment came when Ronald Araujo’s decision to foul Bradley Barcola shifted the momentum in PSG’s favor, leading to their eventual victory.

PSG’s upcoming semi-final against Dortmund will be an intriguing matchup. During the group stage, Dortmund was unable to defeat PSG, indicating that the upcoming clash could be another challenging encounter for the German team.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.
