A member of England U-20 back room staff has cried out over the plans of Nigeria to snatch Ademola Lookman from England using close family members of the Everton star.
Representatives of the 19 year old have met with officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and Lookman reportedly seems interested in switching allegiance to Nigeria despite representing England at various youth levels.
England are however unhappy that Nigeria has been using all means available to lure the Everton rising star, including close family members who are putting the lad under pressure to accept Nigeria.
” The pressure is telling. Lookman is a young man who should be allowed to focus on his club career but Nigeria are putting him under immense pressure, he is still building his career and the last thing he needs is distractions due to his international future”, he reportedly said to an Everton based media.
However his acceptance to play for Nigeria will be in the open after his meeting with coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr next week, according to reports gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com.
We also gathered that his father is reportedly in supporting of his son representing Nigeria as he is a big fan of the Super Eagles but will let his son decide his international future.
