Chidera Eze looks beyond Dream Team

By George Aluo
One player who is plotting to make very good use of the opportunity provided by his Dream Team call up for Wednesday’s game against Libya in the AFCON U-23 qualifier is Portugal based Chidera Eze.
Eze who plies his soccer trade with Portimonense FC in Portugal wants to use the game to re launch his international career.
Eze who was a member of the Golden Eaglet squad that won the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup for Nigeria in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) believes a good showing against Libya is all he needs to catch Gernot Rohr’s attention.
A close pal of the 21-year old support striker told The Nigerian Xpress Sports that Eze has been praying for this opportunity which he has now gotten, courtesy of Coach Imama Amakapabo.
“Should he (Eze) get to play against Libya, then Nigerians would see that he remains a bundle of talent. Eze has personally vowed not to allow this opportunity slip…and I hope he matches word with action. His desire is perform well with the Dream Team and eventually fight for a place in the Eagles,” Eze’s pal who pleaded anonymity said.
Eze who last year was sidelined by injury for over six months has since fully recovered and rearing to go.
It is recalled that the Imo state born midfielder joined Porto as a 16-year-old for his first professional contract, but was loaned to Portimonense.
