Nigerian Wonder Kid Ebere Eze justified his inclusion in the starting lineup for QPR as he scored the winning goal in their 1-0 victory of Sunderland in an English Championship game at Loftus Road on Saturday
Fans of the club had been clamoring for QPR Boss Ian Hollaway to start the 19 year old Nigerian and after another amazing display of the bench this time against Derby last week, the coach had no choice but to hand the youngster a start against Sunderland
Ebere took his opportunity with both hands scoring in the 62nd minute after some brilliant skill, ghosting past Sunderlands Lee Cattermole before playing a one-two with Matt Smith and striking perfectly into the near post.
Ebere was a constant threat playing on the left side of the attack causing problems with his vision and quick feet.
There were 6 players of Nigerian descent on both sides and one of them Ovie Ejaria almost gifted QPR their 2nd goal when he needlessly lost possession on the half way line but had his goalkeeper to thank.
Ovie Ejaria seemed a little shaky in the match but still registered Sunderlands only one meaningful shot in the 1st half which was blocked by another Nigerian and one-time Sunderland loanee Nedum Onuoha
Ebere Ezes Nigerian compatriot and friend at QPR Bright Osayi-Samuel who came on in the 72nd minute almost made the game safe for the Rs with a fine long range strike in the last 10 minutes which brought a good save out of Lee Camp
Sundelands Joel Asoro who started in place of Browning had a decent game but was sacrificed after Jason Steele was given his marching orders for handled the ball right on the edge of the box, while Josh Maja came on as an 87th minute substitute and showed some neat touches
Ebere Eze was substituted in the 89th minute
