‘Can’t Wait To Represent My Country’ –Lookman Thrilled With Maiden Super Eagles Invitation

Leicester City winger Ademola Lookman has celebrated his maiden invitation to the Super Eagles, reports Completesports.com.

Lookman was named in Nigeria’s 32-man provisional squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff against Black Stars of Ghana by interim technical adviser Augustine Eguavoen on Friday.


The 24-year-old winger, who currently turns out for Premier League side Leicester City but on loan from RB Leipzig, had his nationality switch approved by FIFA last month.

    Good to see,I’m glad also that he has corrected himself,the other day he used THE country instead of my country,I complained here and some dimwits were pissed.

    • Yh, I noticed that also but I didn’t just want to talk maybe the CSN made a mistake. Am still waiting for adarabioyo to change to Nigeria, we need a defender like him and he is destined for greatness, am sure in the next two seasons he will be a world class player

        Adarabioyo is not good enough!!..he is an average player !!

        • Recheck, pls make your research don’t judge people from what you have heard in the past, do your private research about the guy, he is likely going to west ham next season but could choose to stay at Fulham if they get promoted.
          And if west ham gets him he won’t want to change again like our brother M olise

  • The jersey fit Lookman gan. Like he was born with the jersey.

    Dayo, more like some of us don’t see the beauty of Nigeria jersey. Look at the left hand side of Lookman, I mean the slide to the ribs. Nice.

    We have a collection of young and quality players all around the world, what we are lacking is the right personal to put these materials together and create something beautiful. Go out there and get a technically good and sound expert, he doesn’t have to be a big name, Westerhof and Bonfere were unknown quantity before they came to Nigeria, and up till tomorrow they remained the best football manager Nigeria has ever had. All this clamours for home grown coaches would not work here, we all like to be patriotic but we have to apply common sense as well. But at the same time what can you expect, in a country where a business man with a degree in political science and public administration is heading the Football Federation. Even the Sport Minister is a Journalist with Degree in International Studies and Law, with no link or relationship to Sport whatsoever, but he is a Sport Minister, what do you expect from these people? But in Nigeria, you can have a Degree in Language Studies and find yourself in the Commissioner for Police Office.
