"I Will Be Honoured To Play For Nigeria" - Sheyi Ojo, Liverpool Star by Gisthoodng(m): 11:20am On Sep 24, 2018
Liverpool Ace Sheyi Ojo has revealed he would consider playing for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, if invited.

Ojo, who played for England at the U-20 level is currently on loan at French club, Reims.

He is eligible to play for Nigeria because his parents are Nigerians.

And despite playing for England from under-16 to under-21 level with 43 caps, Ojo said he was willing to pitch his tent with the Super Eagles.

“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,” the winger 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.”

“Of course, if I was to get selected I’d definitely think about it, I’d never turn down Nigeria,” added Ojo.

“I’m from Nigeria originally so it’d be an honour, likewise with England as well. If I keep doing well, opportunities will come by for club and country.”

Nice one... Honestly, I like his Patriotism and hope he's invited soon. We need fast wingers in our National Team.... I'm sure he will be a nice replacement for Victor Moses who just retired from the National Team.

Super eagle will be great if Nigerians in diaspora comes back

Lots of our boys are out there(some even yet to be discovered)

Boys from local leagues as well should also be given opportunity

What scares these boys away is management of national team

Do mind those who posted above you in their silly praise songs of patriotism. When these kid's hopes of playing for England were dashed, they remember Nigeria.
