Eze: Newcastle United Defeat Difficult To Take

Eze: Newcastle United Defeat Difficult To Take

Eberechi Eze has described Crystal Palace’s 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United as ‘demoralising’, reports Completesports.com.

The Eagles dominated for most of the game but went home disappointed with nothing to show for their efforts.

The midfielder’s assessment is an accurate one, too, with the Magpies’ two late goals coming in the face of 57% possession, 11 shots, seven corners and several impressive Karl Darlow saves.

But Palace were still trumped in the final seconds, leading Eze to tell Palace TV: “It’s demoralising losing like that. We dominated for most of the game and I think you get punished at the end if you don’t take your chances and leave it too open for them. It’s a hard one to take for us but we’ll be stronger and go again.

“We have to move on to the next game and play right in the next game.”

Asked to drill-down into why Palace’s attacks were unable to produce goals, Eze said: “I don’t know. It’s a difficult one. The more we keep creating and the more we get in the opposition box, eventually it will go in.

“We just have to keep trying, keep working to put them in the back of the net.”

Finally, the 22-year-old did express a more positive post-match note, reflecting on the talents of teammate, Jeffrey Schlupp, who played ahead of him against United.

“He’s very versatile,” Eze said. “He runs in behind, he can take it to feet. He’s a great player to play with and I think he’s a great asset for the team.”

    Welcome to the top level…! Lolz.
    Meanwhile, Micheal Olise and Ejaria just combined beautifully to set up Yakub Meite to put Reading 2-1 ahead against Bristol City and its still the 77th min. Ejaria earlier put reading ahead with a shot from the edge of the box. 2 good AMs who will be unique additions to the SE if we can have them.

      The problem is that European nations have sworn not to let us have players developed in their system… They armtwist those boys. Force then to turn their back on Nigeria even though they have ten others in high pecking order in their positions… You could realize how they confused lookman when we first expressed interest until he realized they English FA were playing table tennis with his head. Recall Solanke too… If Bournemouth comes back to premier league again they will start confusing him again… We can push for him now because he can assist Osimhen well. Ejaria wants with us again but I doubt if France will allow us have MIchael Olise… They will just call and cap him once we push. Those Europeans know what they are doing… See Jordan Torunarigha… feeling German before him eyes clears after Schalke 04 ultra fans racist chants, taunting him that his dream for playing for Germany will go on longer… That was his wakeup call that shook him back to his warri roots and senses. I don’t see us getting the enterprising Olise…

    “The problem is that European nations have sworn not to let us have players developed in their system…”. would you blame England? this is what it means when they say “to reap where you did not so”. everything in Nigeria seems to be failing, even to the point of not developing emerging talents. though, these dual-nationalities players still have the right to choose which country to play for, and it is wrong and unethical to pressure them to do otherwise. I hope tourinhga chooses to play for Nigeria. the guy has quality. funny enough, this is the same guy rohr approached and tried to convince by telling tourinhga he will be invited to the world cup, but like most young lads he said he felt at home in Germany. if tourinhga agrees to play for Nigeria, in my opinion, him , akpoguma and awaziem would be our three man defense for ’22.
    I hope you guys are aware onuachu scored brace today. I hate to say it but this guy has talent we are overlooking. I’m not in support of building super eagles around his style of play because that has numerous disadvantages. but it seems there’s something rohr is seeing in the lad that most fans are not, including me. when fans shouted their disappointment in ighalo especially because of his poor form in the last world cup, rohr kept inviting him nevertheless. rohr kept showing faith in him, and ighalo repaid his manager’s faith. we all know the rest of the story – rohr was right, the fans were wrong. fast forward to today, fans are screaming for the head of onuachu but rohr is still sticking to his guns. question : will rohr end up right about onuachu and fans wrong? personally I hope so. Paul deserves a good career, and if he does well it will be a win-win for both him and super eagles at large.
