Eberechi Eze

Crystal Palace forward, Eberechi Eze has expressed his satisfaction and excitement after choosing to represent the England national team over the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

In an interview with ESPN, Eze spoke about his decision, stating, "We think that this is the best one. It is a big opportunity for me. It is the highest level of football. I look at it with no regret at all."

Receiving the senior call-up from England was a validation of Eze's talent and hard work. He expressed his delight, saying, "I received the call, and I felt it was the right decision to make, and I am very, very happy to be here."

Eze is eager to test himself at the highest level of football and contribute to England's success on the international stage.

Eze's exceptional performances in the Premier League, where he scored 10 goals and provided four assists in 38 appearances, caught the attention of England manager Gareth Southgate, leading to his recent call-up.

In December 2019, the former president of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, had met with Eze and expressed optimism that he would choose to play for Nigeria. Although Eze had previously represented England at the Under-20 and Under-21 levels, he ultimately decided to commit his international future to the Three Lions.

The 22-year-old forward's decision to represent England comes as a blow to the Nigerian national team, as they had hoped to secure his services.
