The Queens Park Rangers ace has been in brilliant form for the Loftus Road side this season.

A number of Queens Park Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to bemoan the latest England Under-21s squad selection, which does not feature QPR prodigy Eberechi Eze (England website).

The 21-year-old has been in superb form for the West London club this season, already registering three goals and two assists in the Championship, and stats site WhoScored has given him three Man of the Match ratings.

 

Even in tougher games such as the one earlier this week, where QPR fell to a 3-0 defeat away at Cardiff City, Eze stood out for his side with slick passing and several good efforts, including a curling shot which struck the post and bounced clear.

Despite his efforts this season, Eze - who has been called at England Under-20 level - was not included in Aidy Boothroyd's U21s squad for the games against Slovenia and Austria, and some QPR made their feelings known on social media.

Former QPR coach Andy Bircham compared Eze - valued at £3.2million by Transfermarkt - to Manchester City and England star Raheem Sterling in quotes reported by Sky Sports News back in August.
