Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze under FA investigation over attendance at QPR FA Cup clash

As confirmed by numerous sources online this evening, the Football Association have opened an investigation into a potential Covid-19 breach on the part of Eberechi Eze.

Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze under FA investigation over attendance at QPR FA Cup clash

Cottagers march on

The news comes on the back of QPR’s meeting with Fulham on Saturday.

The Hoops welcomed their capital rivals to Loftus Road, for an FA Cup 3rd-round clash.

A hard-fought affair between the sides was eventually forced into extra-time, after both failed in their efforts to find an all-important opener over the course of the first 90 minutes.

Extra-time, though, saw Premier League quality prove telling.

First, Bobby Reid found the net for the visitors, dealing a major blow to the hosts’ hopes of advancing.

And any remaining hope of a QPR comeback was then essentially killed off just minutes later, as Neeskens Kebano doubled Fulham’s advantage, guiding Scott Parker’s men into the 4th-round of the FA Cup in the process.

Eze concern

As outlined above, though, QPR’s defeat on Saturday may eventually prove to be a damaging one for not only the club’s current crop of players, but also one of their former stars.

Eberechi Eze, who of course departed Loftus Road for Crystal Palace during the summer, was in attendance at yesterday’s clash.

The 22-year-old was afforded a seat in the Hoops’ Directors’ box, after reportedly being invited as a guest of the club.

Despite returning a negative coronavirus test at the request of his ex-employers, however, as per a number of reports doing the rounds online this evening, Eze is now under investigation on the part of the FA.

This comes with the midfielder/winger, despite claims to the contrary, having not been granted permission to attend by English football’s governing body.

It now remains to be seen whether Eze is found guilty of breaching Covid-19 protocols.
