Ademola Lookman explains tough decision to dump England for Nigeria


Lookman made his debut for Nigeria from the bench at the Baba Yara Stadium in Ashanti, Ghana and started the return leg at the MKO Abiola Stadium Abuja.

In a report by Complete Sports, Lookman explained the details on how he made the decision to switch his international allegiance.

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,”
