Former Nigerian International, Samson Siasia, has told Super Eagles handler, Augustine Eguavoen, to convince England-born midfielder Eberechi Eze to switch allegiance and play for the Super Eagles.
Siasia believes Eze, who currently plays his club football at Crystal Palace in the Premier League, is like Nigerian legend Austin Jay-Jay Okocha.
“Well, we don’t just have a number 10, that is a creative midfielder in the mode of Jay-Jay Okocha that can distribute accurate passes to the strikers,” Siasia told The Sun.
“We don’t just have them now and that is why I have been thinking of Chidera Eze with Crystal Palace. The Super Eagles need that player. He could be the next Okocha if we invite him.
“I have told Eguavoen that the team needs a player of his mood. He will be a good addition to the Super Eagles. We need somebody like him in the team because if you don’t have an offensive player who creates chances for the strikers to score, the team will have problems.”
