The Nigerian Football Federation is currently facing heavy criticism over their public pursuit of England-born midfielder, Ebere Eze.

The president of the federation, Amaju Pinnick, was in London last week to persuade the 21-year-old who is eligible to play for Nigeria due to his descent.

A photo of the QPR star and Pinnick was uploaded on the official Twitter handle of the NFF to update Nigerians on the moves being made by the president to get the skilful midfielder to play for his fatherland.

Perhaps the federation was expecting to be lauded for their chase of the man who has been dubbed as the 'new Jay-Jay Okocha' but they have been criticised for 'begging' players to play for the country.

Some others have even accused the federation of failing to develop their own youth system instead of hoping to reap gains from where they did not sow:

Ebere, who was invited to the Super Eagles team a couple of years ago, has played for England's youth teams and recently made his debut for the U-21 side.

Nigeria made similar moves for Chelsea academy graduates, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, but the duo ended their representation for the Three Lions.
