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
England U20 World Cup winner, Sheyi Ojo, is open to playing for the Super Eagles if he is called to represent Nigeria. The 21-year-old Liverpool star on loan at French club, Reims, is eligible to represent Nigeria according to FIFA rules because, he is yet to play for England’s senior team, and of course because his parents are Nigerians. Sheyi has 43 caps for England from U-16 to U-21 level, and chances are he may get called to represent the Three Lions in the future, however, according to the player, his allegiances can change if he is called up by Nigeria anytime soon.
To be honest, I don’t know much about it (Nigeria’s interest), but if they call me I’d be honoured to go to Nigeria. 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.” — Ojo (BBC Sport)
In thirteen appearances, Ojo has scored only once for Liverpool’s senior side, and his immediate focus is on establishing himself with Reims as the season progresses.
