Blood is Thicker Than Water: 7 Players Set To Dump England For Nigeria

Despite losing Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori to England in 2019, these Nigerian-descents are ready to ditch the Three Lions for the Super Eagles.

7. Ademola Lookman
RB Leipzig forward is open to the idea of switching his international allegiance to Nigeria, despite representing England at youth level.

Born in England to Nigerian parents, the 22-year-old is an exciting forward capable of producing the goods in the final third.

6. Chuba Akpom
PAOK Salonika striker Chuba Akpom recently declared his intention to switch his international allegiance from England to Nigeria.

The Arsenal Academy graduate has trained with the Super Eagles in the past and 2020 might be the year he makes his debut for his fatherland.

5. Dominic Solanke
Dominic Solanke is ready to ditch the Three Lions for Nigeria, despite representing England at youth level.

However, it would be difficult for the former Liverpool starlet to get called up ahead of Nigeria strikers Victor Osimhen, Kelechi Iheanacho, Josh Maja and Peter Olayinka - considering their form.

4. Sheyi Ojo
Rangers winger Sheyi Ojo is in the process of ditching the Three Lions for Nigeria, despite helping England win the Under 20 World Cup in 2017.

The Liverpool-loanee is hoping to follow the footsteps of teammate Joe Aribo, who picked Nigeria ahead of England.

3. Jordan Ibe
Having rejected the chance to switch allegiance to Nigeria when he was at Liverpool, Jordan Ibe is currently having a second thought.

The Bournemouth winger is an exciting prospect but will have to up his game if he's to have a chance against Moses Simon, Samuel Kalu, Samuel Chukwueze and Dennis Bonaventure.

2. Ebere Eze
Officials of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) have urged Eberechi Eze to play for his fatherland.

The Queens Park Rangers dazzler is one of the brightest young sparks in the Championship this season and will be a good addition to the Super Eagles team.

1. Bukayo Saka
Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka has already declared his love for the Super Eagles, although he has represented England at youth level.

NFF President Amaju Pinnick is currently making moves to make the 18-year-old choose Nigeria ahead of England - just as Alex Iwobi did.
