Lookman to Nigeria
According to the report, it was a tough decision as Lookman explained that his parents are Nigerians and have brought him to the country on multiple occasions.
He said, “It was a tough decision. A decision I had to make because obviously, it was my country’s call.
“My parents are Nigerians and I came to Nigeria a lot of times growing up and Nigeria wasn’t new to me.
“Making decisions wasn’t a tough decision in terms of knowing where I was going. Coming into the team, the squad has been great.
“Everyone has been very receptive and welcoming. I love this group and the people,”
