NFF Plots Lookman Swoop For Nigeria

The Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation, Bitrus Bewarang, has urged Everton’s new kid, Ademola Lookman to pledge his international future to the Super Eagles rather than his country of birth, England.
The Southwark-born striker has reportedly hinted he would play for  Nigeria at the senior level, but will remain with the English youth teams for now, with the next big event on the FIFA calendar  being the U-20 World Cup.
However, Bewarang has insisted that Lookman is in the plans of the NFF, and a call-up to the national team appears imminent.
“The Super Eagles coach has been combing Europe for youthful players and those on current form who are playing for their clubs” Bewarang told allnigeriasoccer.com.
“I saw Lookman against Manchester City, he scored a beautiful goal. We are taking notice of him because he can be called up.”
“Selection is done by the coach, we will try to draw his attention to the player if he doesn’t know him already.”
“We have to talk to him and convince him to play for Nigeria, it’s a good development for our football.”
The 19-year-old Lookman first played for England at U-19 level before he was promoted to the U-20 squad.
