No Regret Switching From England To Nigeria – Ajax Forward With 15 Goals Hope For Super Eagles Chance


The decision of Chuba Akpom to switch his international allegiance from England to Nigeria hasn’t yielded any positive output as he is yet to be capped by Nigeria three years after he was given the green light by world football governing body FIFA to play for Nigeria, reports.

Akpom who represented England at various youth levels was snubbed by former coach Jose Peseiro, who despite referencing his availability and good form didn’t back it up with a call up for the 28 year old even when he was voted the best player in the English Championship last season.

After a slow start following his move to Dutch giants Ajax , he has found his feet once again and now has 15 goals from 30 games in all competitions, a remarkable output especially with Ajax having all sorts of issues on and off the pitch this season.

He is now hoping that the form will get him a maiden call up to the team with former Ajax winger Finidi George now at the helm as the substantive coach of the Super Eagles, following the exit of Peseiro upon the expiration of his contract in February.

” When you make certain decisions you don’t look back. Chuba has been in his best form lately and more than ready to represent Nigeria when he gets the chance. As for England that is a closed chapter because he has no regrets turning his back on them for senior football. The way forward is to keep his form and hope for a call to the Super Eagles”, a source close to the former Arsenal prospect told
