The chances of German-Nigerian defender Felix Uduokhai switching allegiance to Nigeria from Germany has been rated 50-50 by top German journalist Mark Roland.
20 year old Uduokhai joined Bundesliga side Wolfsburg in the summer from second division side 1860 Munich, and he has acquitted himself successfully to the demands of the top flight league in Germany.
With three caps to his name for Germany at U20 level, Uduokhai who also played for Germany at U19 level reportedly met with coach of the Nigerian team Gernot Rohr during his last visit to Germany.
” Talks were held over a possible switch of allegiance to Nigeria. Remember he confirmed it to the press when he was first approached by Nigeria. This time around it looked like it ended on a promising note”, Mark told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” I think he stands a 50-50 chance of switching allegiance to Nigeria. It’s not easy for some of these youngsters, so they usually take their time before committing their future to another country, bar their country of birth”.
