QPR boss Ian Holloway has tipped Super Eagles new boy Ebere Eze for a prominent role in the team in a not too distant future judging by how well he has settled at the club.
Eze joined the team from Millwall as a free agent in the summer and has emerged as one of the best players for the U23s, which forced Holloway to hand him his first team debut in the FA Cup tie against Blackburn in January.
The 18 year old impressed during his 18 minute cameo in the 1-2 defeat suffered by QPR, as he had to be substituted after picking up an achilles injury.
However, Holloway was pleased with his displays and tipped him for more roles with the first team before the season comes to an end for the promotion chasing outfit.
” He’s got unbelievable ability, but the question is whether he can produce it our here. Millwall let him go, some people may find it strange I’m giving him a chance, but I believe in him”, Holloway told the Times.
“He’s got a lot to learn defensively but going forward he’s got all sorts of ability. He’s really impressed me in training, but now it’s my responsibility to really teavh him the game”.
Nigeria moved ahead of England in the race to cap the talented teen by including him in their recently concluded national team camp in London, with the youngster taking part in a practice game.
However he is still eligible to represent Nigeria and England at senior level but scoops gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com has it that he has shut the door on representing England.
