Nigeria Super Eagles are set to miss out on another talented player as Eberechi Eze has been invited to the England Three Lions.

Nigeria has suffered a major blow in its pursuit of Crystal Palace star Eberechi Eze to represent the country at international level after he received a call up from England. 

Eze has been superb this season for the Eagles and has been rewarded with his first-ever international invitation to the Three Lions.

He is one of three players from Crystal Palace included in the 25-man squad made released to the public on Wednesday afternoon.

Nigeria to miss out on Eze

The Super Eagles have been on the trail of the talented attacking midfielder to wear the colours of Nigeria at international level. 

Eze to England here we go.

But despite all the efforts to get him, it appears that Nigeria can now cut the chase following a maiden invite to the England national side. 

Eze’s call-up will come as a big blow to Nigeria and Nigerians who have followed his progress from Reading in the Championship to the Premier League.

However, for the 22-year-old midfield star, the invitation will be seen as a reward for his hard work and excellent performance for the Eagles this season. 

He has scored 10 goals and assisted four more in what has been an impressive campaign for him in the Premier League.
