Super Eagles

FIFA has given the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) approval for six players with dual nationality to switch allegiance to the Super Eagles.

An official of the NFF told owngoalnigeria.com that out of eight players that applied for the switch, six have been given the all clear.

“Six of the eight players who applied for a switch have been given the go ahead by FIFA.

“The other two will hopefully get their own soon but before then we have forwarded the names to Gernot Rohr. He has the final say,” he said.

When pressed further to reveal the names of the players, he added: “We don’t want fans to put the coach under pressure so giving out the names won’t be appropriate

“But I can tell you the six include a player who has played for Germany at several youth levels and another who has played for England as well.”
