Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper, Joshua Oluwayemi has revealed that he is ready to dump his country of birth – England – to pledge his international allegiance to Nigeria ahead of the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup in Poland.
Oluwayemi, who has featured for England U15s and U16s, is training under the tutelage of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal legend Pat Jennings.
The teenager has hinted that he will gladly accept an invitation from Golden Eaglets’ coach, Manu Garba to play for the West African nation if the Nigeria Football Federation approach him to represent his father’s land, of which he is eligible.
Oluwayemi speaking to Sporty Leagues said: “If Nigeria comes for me, then I’ll go but at the moment I am focusing on England youth, and then Nigeria first”.
The young goalkeeper is among a large pool of players born outside the country, who are eligible to play for Nigeria.
