Born in London to Nigerian parents, Eze has been a target for the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) who are trying to get him to switch his allegiance to Nigeria.

Although he has played for England in the youth levels, the midfielder is still eligible to play for Nigeria.

He once trained with the Super Eagles and has also met the top brass of the NFF in November 2019 to discuss playing for the Super Eagles.
