The International future of the twin sons of former Super Eagles captain Daniel Amokachi could spark an international tug of war between Nigeria and Tunisia.

Kalim and Nazim joined Turkish champions Besiktas on a one year deal from Finnish side JS Hercules, where their father is presently the head coach and pending on how they progress, they could be offered an extension.

However, their progress could bring about an international tussle between Nigeria and Tunisia as they are eligible for both nations.

They qualified for Nigeria through their father, a former Nigeria international and captain but the 20 year old twins are yet to be capped by the West Africa nation at any level, which could open the door for Tunisia to steal the duo.

Amokachi is married to a Tunisian, which mean his sons are eligible to represent the Carthage Eagles. Furthermore their birth was registered in the North African country.

For now, their focus will be on making the grades at Besiktas as they are presently with the Under-21 team of the Turkish side from where their progress will be monitored for promotion to the first team.
