Super Eagles’ Coach, Gernot Rohr, has said that he has contacted Eberechi Eze over the possibility of playing for the Super Eagles, reports Persecondnews.
Eze had featured for England at the U-21, but he’s still qualified to play for three-time African champions as a full international.
The Crystal Palace midfielder once trained with the Super Eagles before the cancelled friendly against Burkina Faso in March 2017 but the player has since developed into one of the hottest footballers in England.
Rohr admitted he is an admirer of the player and contacted him about joining or switching allegiance to the West African giants.
“This is a wonderful player, Ebere Eze is one of the best offensive midfielders I have ever seen in England and I would like to have him with us. But you know that he can also play for England and already played for one team in England.
“I sent him a message and in this message, I showed the interest Nigeria has to get him in this team so he replied and he said he has to think about it,” Rohr said.
Persecondnews reports that there are so many Nigerian players doing well in the English League seeking the attention of the Eagles’ coach.
