“I had a positive meeting with Ebere Eze in London and I spoke to his parents as well,” said Pinnick.”
“He requested for the chance to continue to focus on his club career which is going well so far, and that further progress will be made in due course.”
“But I am confidently hopeful that he will play for Nigeria soon,” he said.
