Ex England Youth International Ejaria Fancies Playing For Nigeria Ahead Of England At Senior Level


On loan Liverpool midfielder Ovie Ejaria will jump at the chance to represent Nigeria at senior level if called up to the senior national team of Nigeria by coach Gernot Rohr, Owngoalnigeria.com reports.


Ejaria has impressed at his loan side Rangers of Scotland this season with 28 games under his belt this season from all of the competitions Rangers are playing this season, namely the Scottish Premier League, Europa League and the League Cup.

21 year old Ejaria according to a family source has always preferred playing for Nigeria since he was a trainee at Arsenal and that partly explain why he trained with the U17s of Nigeria in 2013 before their campaign at the World Youth Championship.

Although he has represented England at U20 and 21 levels, he is still keen on playing for Nigeria at senior level particularly in the build up to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

” He will honour the chance to represent Nigeria if called up. Right from his teen days he has always preferred a career with Nigeria at senior level, that hasn’t changed till date and hopefully he will get a look in before the start of the next Africa Cup of Nations next year”, a family member residing in Abuja told Owngoalnigeria.com.
