Iwobi Reveals Why He Is Playing For Nigeria


Alex Iwobi reveals why he snubbed England to play for Nigeria.

Super Eagles star, Alex Iwobi has disclosed the reasons he snubed England for Nigeria after scoring a brace in the win over Argentina on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old made the choice to play international football for Nigeria in 2015 despite featuring in England's youth teams.

Iwobi admitted his family, including his uncle and former Bolton star, Jay-Jay Okocha, played a pivotal role in the decision.
“I was growing up in England and England was the only national team I knew, so I was actually very pleased to play at national level,” Iwobi said.

“However, my family are all from Nigeria, I was born in Nigeria, my uncle (Jay-Jay Okocha) is a legend in Nigeria.
“That’s why I thought I would give it a chance. That’s why I went to the U23s and somehow felt more welcome, and I thought it’s where I belong, so I made the decision to switch.”
