'It's fantastic for Millwall Football Club' says Scott
"Eze is a central midfielder and has continued to make very good progress. He has signed a scholarship with us so will be with us for at least two more years and now joins Ryan Sandford as a Millwall player who has won international recognition for England U16s.
"It is fantastic for both Eze and Millwall FC that he has been picked to play for England," enthused Academy Director Scott. "He has been with us for four seasons, is a local boy from Thamesmead and was brought to the club by Barry Dunn, Head of Academy Recruitment.
Eze, who signed scholar forms with Millwall, has already played for The Lions U18s last season and is highly regarded by the coaching staff at the club.
Scott Fitzgerald has spoken of the immense pride felt by Millwall FC following Ezechukwu Ebuzoeme's inclusion in England U16s team for this afternoon's international against Belgium at St George's Park.
"Myself and Barry are going to be up at St Georges watching Eze in action, along with all the family who are understandably - like us - very, very proud of him."
