Eze inspires Adana Demirspor Super Ligue dream
By Sab Osuji
Nigeria youngster, Francis Okwuchukwu Eze is just one match away to his dream Turkish Super Ligue dream, Orient Sports reports.
Eze was in action all through 90 minutes as Adana Demirspor crushed his former club, Balikesirspor, 3-0 in one of the top picks of the Turkish second tier Ligue at the weekend.
The huge win takes Eze’s Adana Demirspor, to the summit of the standings with 67 points with one game to end the 2020/2021 campaign.
Adana Demirspor are tied on 67 points with Giresunspor and Samsunspor but with better goal advantage going into the last match of the season.
The 23-year-old Nigerian, scouted during the Nze R.A Oforma Unity tournament sponsored by Chief Chibuzo ‘Bash’ Etuemena, otherwise known as ‘Digital Chairman’, is all optimistic of snatching all three points against Menemenspor, in their last but crucial fixture of the season.
“Its all what one prays for. We’ve been working hard all through the season to get this far and hopefully, God will give us the grace to win (against Menemenspor) to crown our efforts”, Eze quipped to Orient Sports from his base after the 3-0 thrashing of his former club, Balikesirspor, on Saturday.
Eze admitted that the clash won’t be a stroll in the park, more so with Giresunspor and Samsunspor involved in the three horse race.
“Yeah, it won’t gonna come easy. Samsunspor are in it, so also Giresunspor”, he added.
“But ours is to go out there, give our 100% and ensure we took our chances.
“The Super Ligue is the dream of every player. And I’m not exempted. It will be dream come true.
“We’ve the quality and drive. The right mentality has been there too. So, let’s see how it goes in the final moment.
“Our ambition is the (promotion) ticket and hopefully, we will get it”, Ezeh said.
