Amaju Pinnick President Nigeria Football Federation who is confirmed to have met Nigeria Queens Park Rangers midfieder Ebere Eze to play for the Super Eagles would improve the squad.
Pinnick held a meeting with Eze in London last month with the hope of convincing the midfielder to play for Nigeria rather than England at senior level.
Eze, who was born in England to Nigerian parents, has played twice for England at the U-21 level and he is being monitored for the future lion of England.
But Pinnick wants the emerging new ”Jay Jay” Eze to switch allegiances to boost Nigeria’s midfield as they plan for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
“We need to make a solid representation at Qatar 2022 and it starts with improving on your squad with quality players like Eze,” Pinnick told the BBC.
“Can you imagine a midfield with Ndidi, Aribo, Etebo and Eze? it is one that will improve our squad.”
“I had a positive meeting with Ebere Eze in London and I spoke to his parents as well,” said Pinnick.
“He requested for the chance to continue to focus on his club career which is going well so far, and that further progress will be made in due course
“But I am confidently hopeful that he will play for Nigeria soon.”
Ebere Eze, has scored seven goals and provided four assists for his club Queens Park Rangers this season, he is considered as one of the hottest prospects outside of the Premier League and rebirth of Nigerian Legend Jay Jay Okocha.
