Crystal Palace manager, Roy Hodgson is showing his support for Eberechi Eze and has endorsed the midfielder to join the likes of Bukayo Saka and Tammy Abraham to represent the Three Lions.
Since Hodgson’s appointment as Palace manager, the 24-year old has improved his performance; a stark contrast to his slow start earlier in the season.
Eze has recently been impressive, with two goals in the team’s 2-0 win over Southampton at St Mary’s. This result secured Palace’s third consecutive victory and further strengthened their move further away from the relegation zone.
The midfielder, who is eligible to play for either Nigeria and England, was picked by Gareth Southgate for his Euro 2020 33-man provisional squad, but suffered an Achilles injury.
Now back to peak fitness, he is aiming to be called up for the European Championship in 2024.
Eberechi Eze was courted by former NFF boss Amaju Pinnick and former Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr and there were pictures of the former QPR player in Nigeria’s camp, donning a polo shirt of the Super Eagles alongside Alex Iwobi and Ola Aina, before his big break.
