Eze received a call-up to represent England after scoring six goals in his final 10 outings to help Palace rally under interim manager Roy Hodgson
The 24-year-old star was impressive for the Eagles in the English Premier League 2022-23 campaign, scoring 10 goals, and making 4 assists in 38 league appearances.
After earning and accepting a call-up to join Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions, Eze, has revealed that the call was the best opportunity for him, and he has no regret taking it.
The former head of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, met with the striker in December 2019 and expressed optimism that he would play for the Super Eagles, even though the forward had previously represented England at the Under-20 and Under-21 levels.
But, Eze, speaking to the media, has revealed that receiving the call-up was his best decision and expressed his delight.
“We think that this is the best one. It is a big opportunity for me. It is the highest level of football. I look at it with no regret at all.
“It is the highest level of football. You want to test yourself against that, you want to be in that, and you can see from the quality of the team, where they are getting to, the confidence they are playing with, it is incredible. So, being part of that is big.
“I received the call, and I felt it was the right decision to make, and I am very, very happy to be here,” he said, as quoted by ESPN.
England is expected to face Malta in their UEFA Euro qualifiers on Friday, and Eze is expected to debut for the Three Lions in front of the home crowds at the Ta’ Qali National Stadium in Malta.
