Ebere: It meant a lot

Starlet speaks after Cambridge win.

9 October 2017

Ebere Eze says his two-goal haul in the 3-1 win at Cambridge on Saturday was the result of work on the training ground with his team-mates and the coaching staff.

The QPR loanee attracted national attention for two stunning strikes, both from a similar position into the same top corner, which set the Chairboys on their way to a fourth successive victory.

“It meant a lot to me,” he said afterwards. “They were my first goals in professional football and I thank God for that.

“I’m just happy to get the win for the team – I’m buzzing for everyone.”

Talking through his memories of the goals, Eze revealed that the advice of Matt Bloomfield encouraged him to feed off the lay-off from Adebayo Akinfenwa for the first, and that extra shooting practice with Gareth Ainsworth played a part in the second.

“For the first goal, it came down for me and I just thought I’d take a shot and it found the top corner. I watch Blooms a lot and he tells me to work off the big man – it’s a lot easier to have someone like him around and it means I can get high up the pitch.

“For the second one, I’d practised that shot in training with the gaffer. I’ve actually been working on putting power on my shots but I thought I could place this one and it went in.”
