He is hoping his performances will open the door for him to gain international recognition and have a taste of international football, he is eligible to represent Germany and also Nigeria but he is yet to be capped at any level.

The 23 year old who is very comfortable with both feets however picked playing for Germany as his preference because he grew up there. He is eligible to represent Nigeria through his grand parents .

“I qualify for Germany and Nigeria but I would prefer Germany because that’s where I grew up,” he said.

“It’s a great country to play for an hopefully one day I can make a couple of appearances, then maybe a couple more and then, who knows, perhaps play in a World Cup or Euros.

“But I need to do my best for the club first. That’s the most important thing and after that we can talk about the national team”.
