Super Eagles Target Eze Receives First England Call-Up

Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze received his first call-up to the England squad on Wednesday as Raheem Sterling was omitted for Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia.

This could end the dream of many Nigerians who have been hoping for him to represent the Super Eagles at senior international level.

Eze, who was born in Greenwich, South London to Nigerian parents is also eligible to play for Nigeria, but the England call-up may end that possibility.

He has represented England at both Under-20 and Under-21 level, and was named in the U21 squad the same week he signed for Palace.

In 2019, former President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick had a meeting with Eze and his parents on the potential of the England U21 midfielder switching his allegiance to Nigeria.

Eze’s performances have caught the eye, with six goals in eight games under Roy Hodgson, who returned to Selhurst Park as coach in March.
