Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka says choosing between Nigeria and England is tough
Arsenal’s youngster Bukayo Saka has broken his silence about a possible switch of international allegiance from England to Nigeria.
Saka who has recently been awarded the Arsenal’s prestigious number 7 jersey is one of the brightest young stars in the Premier League.
There have been reports that the Amaju Pinnick led Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are already making moves to secure him in the Super Eagles future.
Saka an interview with Skysports gave his verdict on the rumours insisting he is yet to make a decision on his career on the international stage.
He said, “Its a tough choice. I’m happy to have represented England at youth level but I’m proud of my Nigerian heritage from my parents.
“We haven’t been picked by any team so its about staying humble & when the time comes we’ll make the decision”
Saka has represented England at several youth levels but is yet to play for the Three Lions which makes him still eligible to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
