Pinnick said: “I have met Eze’s father, we had dinner and argued about it. I have also met with Eze when he came to see me some time ago, but the truth is that we have to allow them time to decide.” He told the Sun sports.

According to Pinnick, the Federation won’t beg any player to switch allegiance to Nigeria.

“We won’t beg anybody to play for Nigeria. We can only talk to them to come to play for fatherland if they wish to. But, we are not going to go cap in hand to beg anybody. We have many players even in our domestic league,” he said.
