Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze has been performing brilliantly this season, and his efforts have been recognized with his first national team selection. However, it is not Nigeria who has called him up, but England.
The talented midfielder has been in top form for Crystal Palace this season, showcasing his skills and abilities on the pitch. His impressive performances have caught the attention of many, including England manager Gareth Southgate.
Eze has been named in England’s squad for their upcoming 2024 Euro Qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia. This is a huge achievement for the young player, who has been working hard to prove himself and make a name for himself in the Premier League.
Although there had been talks about Eze representing Nigeria, it seems that England has won the race to secure his services. However, this does not mean that Eze has completely ruled out the possibility of playing for Nigeria in the future.
For now, Eze is focused on making the most of his opportunity with England. He will be looking to impress Southgate and his coaching staff, and hopefully, earn a permanent place in the team.
Eze’s inclusion in the England squad is not just a testament to his individual qualities but also to the talent and potential of young players in the Premier League. The league has been a breeding ground for some of the world’s best footballers, and Eze is yet another example of this.
Crystal Palace fans will be delighted to see one of their own getting called up to the national team and will be hoping that this is just the start of a long and successful international career for Eze. As for Nigeria, they will have to look elsewhere for their midfield talent, but they can take pride in knowing that they played a part in Eze’s development as a footballer.
