Coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has partially thrown in the towel in his bid to wrestle talented QPR teen prospect Ebere Eze from England after his debut for the U20s.
Ebere trained with the Super Eagles of Nigeria during their camping exercise in England and even took part in a test game organised by Rohr among the players after the cancellation of a planned friendly game.
Unlike Ola Aina who has since gone on to establish himself as a full fledged international since that camp exercise in London, Eze wasn’t approached by Rohr since then despite his fine form for QPR in the English Championship.
England finally got wind of his potentials and offered the 20 year old a spot in their U20 team and Rohr has now confirmed in an interview with Collin Udoh that Nigeria stand a very slim chance of luring him from England now.
“So could he still be in Nigeria’s plans? “Yes,” Rohr told KweséESPN, before admitting that the road is now just that little bit tougher: “But it will be a long process before authorisation for him to play for us.”
