Rangers forward Sheyi Ojo has declared that he is ready to switch allegiance and represent Nigeria at senior level if called up by the Super Eagles coach.
Ojo, 22, was born in England to Nigerian parents and has represented the Europeans 43 times across youth levels.
He played five matches for England at the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
The striker who is on loan at Rangers from Premier League side, Liverpool is however still eligible to play his country of birth, Nigeria.
Under FIFA rules he can switch allegiance because he is yet to play for the senior team of England.
“I ve made it known that I am willing to switch allegiance to Nigeria. I’ll be glad if I am called up because just like Joe Aribo, I also want to play for Nigeria at senior level,” Ojo told the BBC.
Ojo’s Rangers teammate, Joe Aribo made his debut for Nigeria in last month’s 2-2 friendly against Ukraine.
Aribo , who has also been included in Nigeria’s squad for the friendly against Brazil on October 13 scored the opening goal against Ukraine.
It would be recalled that PAOK of Greece striker, Chuba Akpom recently declared his readiness to play for Nigeria.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
