NFF Should Have Sleepless Nights Until Eberechi Eze Plays For Super Eagles
Eberechi Eze was among the seven substitutes as experienced Crystal Palace coach Roy Hodgson named his first team sheet of the 2020-2021 season against Southampton on Saturday evening.
With 79 minutes gone, the England U21 international of Nigerian descent stepped out on to the Selhurst Park turf with the number 25 on the back of his jersey for his Crystal Palace debut, replacing Jeffrey Schlupp in the process.
Eze was comfortable on the ball and showed glimpses of his silky skills in his first ever appearance in the top-flight, as highlighted by Kyle Walker-Peters falling to the deck when he tried to stop the winger’s run.
With Eze being heavily courted by the Nigeria Football Federation to play for the Super Eagles, several Nigerian fans ran the rule over the former Queens Park Rangers star and were clearly impressed by his performance, taking to social media to praise him during and after the game.
Here’s what Nigerian fans are saying on Twitter about Eze : @ArowojoluTolu : “Eze with a decent 15mins of play”.
