England Under-20 World Cup winner Sheyi Ojo has said he would consider playing for The Super Eagles of Nigeria if Nigeria comes calling.
According to a report from the BBC the 21-year-old, who is on loan at French club Reims from Liverpool is now quite open to representing the African Nation despite having 43 England caps from under-16 to under-21 level,
It’s starting to get to the time where I have to start thinking about my future. And of course, if Nigeria were to call me now it would be an honour
“To be honest, I don’t know much about it (Nigeria interest), but if they call me I’d be honoured to go to Nigeria,” Ojo told BBC Sport.
“It’s obviously a massive nation. I’m just really focused on club football at the moment, but I’m excited for the future, both club and country.
“My parents are originally from Nigeria as well, so they know a lot about it. They’ve always been keen on the idea [to represent Nigeria] but so far I’ve mainly been focusing on club football.
“It’s starting to get to the time where I have to start thinking about my future. And of course, if Nigeria were to call me now it would be an honour.”
Sheyi Ojo was part of the England U-20 squad that Won the 2017 Fifa U-20 World Cup playing five matches including the 1-0 win over Venezuela in the final.
Nigeria have previously succeeded in snapping up former England youth internationals like Sone Aluko, Victor Moses, Shola Ameobi, Alex Iwobi and Ola Aina for the Super Eagles and look set to add Ademola Lookman and Ovie Ejaria to the list
