Ademola Lookman insisted he made the right decision to choose Nigeria over England.

Lookman, who was born in Wandsworth, South West London to Nigerian parents represented England at the youth level.

The explosive winger was part of the England U-20 team that won the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Lookman also progressed to the U-21 team where he made 11 appearances and scored one goal.

The 25-year-old turned down the chance to play for the Super Eagles thrice before finally accepting to switch nationality.


The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) granted his request to play for the Super Eagles on February 10, 2022.

“I have no regrets, I took the right decision. This is my career,” he told L’Eco di Bergamo.

“I want to play for Nigeria and am proud of this. I was born in England, but my family is from Nigeria and I have a strong bond with both countries.”

Lookman has made six appearances for the Super Eagles with a goal to his name.
