Everton Sensation Lookman, To Play For Nigeria

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is set to convince Everton star, Ademola Lookman to consider snubbing England for Nigeria. Ademola Lookman is being coveted by the Nigerian FA as they hope the young striker will chose to play his international career for them, with a possible call-up as soon as next month.

Nigeria’s boss Rohr is planning to visit Lookman in the coming weeks after Lookman’s representatives held talks with the Nigerian FA last week.

Reports also claim he could be handed a call-up as soon as next month for the friendly games in preparation for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers as well as the AFCON qualifiers.

Lookman is eligible to play for both Nigeria and England as his parents are of Nigerian descent, but has played his youth international football for England. He has had three appearances for the England Under 20 side, scoring once, which could mean Lookman may have his sights on the three lions shirt.
