PAOK Thessaloniki Striker Chuba Akpom has declared interest to play for Nigeria, ahead of England, and is only waiting for an invite to the Super Eagles.

Akpom told, “I have always known I wanted to play for Nigeria”, despite playing at every age grade for England.

“Although I have played in all the youth groups for England, I have always known I wanted to play for Nigeria,” the striker said.

“I am ready and I’m only waiting for the call up. My agents have been in talks with the Coaches and Federation, so maybe in a few months I would get an invite. I have signed off my allegiance.”

Speaking about his chances of playing for England, Akpom admits there were no guarantees of longevity.

“It’s always good to play where you’re loved. If you play for England you may only play a few games or caps and then you’re dropped for the next striker, who is hot.”
