Crystal Palace winger, Eberechi Eze's visit to his former club QPR over the weekend for their FA Cup third-round tie against Fulham is being investigated by the Football Association.

The England-born Nigerian footballer sat in the directors' box at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium as Rangers were beaten 2-0 in extra-time by Fulham.

Eze was pictured not wearing a facemask or social distancing from others as he watched his old team slip to a defeat.

It is understood that Eze who was an invited guest of QPR for the tie, complied with Covid protocols and returned a negative Covid test prior to attending.

But the FA has told Sky Sports News it will be looking into Eze's attendance and the governing body has stated that, contrary to some reports, it did not grant the 22-year-old approval to go to the game

That is set to result in punishment for all three parties - QPR, Eze, and Palace.

QPR boss Mark Warburton said: "I've no idea whether he broke protocols or not. You'd have to ask our health and safety officer because that's above my pay-grade.

"I want to talk about the game. What other players do in their own time, I can't comment on that. It's not my area of expertise. Far from it."

Eberechi Eze, who was born in Greenwich, England to Nigerian parents is eligible to play for both Nigeria and England.
