I complain when its necessary and as you remember the last time, I took you to task and humiliated you.

What I do want you to see though is to look at your post and feel ashamed of who you are and who you have become. The funny part of life is that you are probably one of those Nigerians who cry and cry because of oppressive and "i dont care" actions of the government. However, you are no different. Look at your attitude? For a moderator position of a website? :lol: and you are unagreeable, arrogant and a very poor leader with zero empathy? Just imagine if you had real authority? A governor? or President? Just imagine who you will become? You think you are doing me? :lol: :lol: LOL bro, you are doing yourself!
What are you talking about?
He has 'rejected' Nigeria. Simple.
Does he have to write a 'Letter of Rejection' on Facebook for you to recognise that?

He has been a 'person of interest' to Nigerian football for a while now and it is perfectly reasonable to discuss his matter at length here as has been done.

Eagles Nest asks you to "discuss Nigerian related football (soccer) topics here."
It doesn't limit you to discussing only Eagles-eligible players, otherwise we wouldn't be chatting about the Real Madrid Academy or Nike or even your good friend Tunde Adlakun for that matter.

You don't need to be so anal about these things.
Jeez.

What did you expect? To reap where you didn't sow?


EXCELLENT POINT


Instead of flying to Europe "to reap where you didn't sow", why not look closer home? Like in Northern Nigeria which is more than 50% of Nigeria's population and yet is vastly underrepresented in the SE to the point of being irrelevant. A little investment in Naira and time there and I'm sure they can come out with players that would improve the SE depth or that are outright stars. But you said it, they prefer to reap where they didn't sow.

With the new European Nations League,England can afford to cap players more regularly so it’s possible he could be capped for England within a year.He is probably going to wait for his chance to play for England.If Nigeria is going to hope to cap such players they’ll need to see if England overlooks them way into their 20s.

The issue is that fans of any country he is eligible for will naturally be excited. All of you who talking about him being born in England do not realise that he is Nigerian until he renounces his citizenship. Again if he commits a serious crime, he can lose his British citizenship and be deported to Nigeria.

Most people wish him well but are dissapointed as fans.

how can he be deported to Nigeria? that is utter nonsense, he might be denied a UK passport , exactly what happened to the British girl that went to fight for ISIS, she was denied entry back in to the UK, not deported to another country, yes he is black, yes his origins is Nigeria but the fact remains, he is British and will certainly play for England and yes he is more than a decent good player

It is not nonsense. Some of the Rotherham rapists were stripped of their UK citizenship and face deportation-
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... ng-members. Nobody has argued with you that he is British - he is. He is also a Nigerian citizen - that is why Nigerians wanted him to play for Nigeria. The fact that he was born in Greenwich doesn't change the fact of his Nigerian citizenship.

You do know that there are a lot of British born people of Nigerian parentage who don’t have a green passport (and never applied) so they are not even Nigerian citizens!

Don’t think we can assume he’s a Nigerian citizen, he has Nigerian heritage so if he did choose to play for us we would then fast track him to become a Nigerian citizen and then submit a switch application.

I know 100% he has not a Nigerian passport, his dad has both though, he was always going to play for England having come through the ranks

He is a Nigerian citizen until he renounces his citizen. His parents are Nigerian. He is a Nigerian citizen from birth. It is a fact, not an assumption. A nationality switch was necessary only because he had played competitively for England. However, even now he is still a Nigerian citizen unless he has renounced his citizenship.

Many citizens do not have passports. A passport is merely a document that allows you to travel. It is one of the ways to prove citizenship but the absence of a passport does not mean that one is not a citizen. Millions of Britons and Americans do not have passports. Millions of Nigerians in Nigeria do not have passports.

He is not a nigerian citizen by any chance! He does not have a Nigerian passport and he was born in Ealing! Went to school in Greenford if i can add it


He is a Nigerian citizen by birth due to his parent's nationality. Boris Johnson never held an American passport but was an American citizen until he renounced his citizenship.

a.every person born in Nigeria before the date of independence, either of
whose parents or any of whose grandparents belongs or belonged to a
community indigenous to Nigeria: Provided that a person shall not become

of his grandparents was born in Nigeria;
b. every person born in Nigeria after the date of independence either of
whose parents or any of whose grandparents is a citizen of Nigeria; and
c. every person born outside Nigeria either of whose parents is a citizen of

Aruako1, th main point is that professionally, the lad has moved on.

We shouldn't feel pained as Nigeria made no investment in him. England like any other land where Africans have settled deserve the pick of it's best talent. In this case, England have done well to recognise that this is an elite player they can't ignore.

I personally have no hard feelings. It would have been a different case I'd we had no Gareth Southgate wey nor send when it comes to racial representation and diversity in the England squad.

As long as he is in charge of the Englad squad, we should get used to hearing more bitterness like this o.

In Nigeria's case, you don't need a green passport to be a citizen. The kid is a Nigerian and English citizen. Don't understand why there is an argument about his citizenship.

Not really arguing, yes he can claim Nigerian nationality due to his parents, facts! he is British and has represented England in several youth tournaments, facts, he is a good player, its only natural he represents England at senior level, facts!

It is not that he can claim. He is a Nigerian citizen by birth. Even the President can't take that from him unless he is a traitor.

On England vs Nigeria, I can understand both sides. I have no problem with his supporting England. I wish him the best with his career.

he was born in Greenford, his dad was born in London as well, what exactly is the issue??


The issue is that fans of any country he is eligible for will naturally be excited. All of you who talking about him being born in England do not realise that he is Nigerian until he renounces his citizenship. Again if he commits a serious crime, he can lose his British citizenship and be deported to Nigeria.

Most people wish him well but are dissapointed as fans.


how can he be deported to Nigeria? that is utter nonsense, he might be denied a UK passport , exactly what happened to the British girl that went to fight for ISIS, she was denied entry back in to the UK, not deported to another country, yes he is black, yes his origins is Nigeria but the fact remains, he is British and will certainly play for England and yes he is more than a decent good player


It is not nonsense. Some of the Rotherham rapists were stripped of their UK citizenship and face deportation-
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... ng-members. Nobody has argued with you that he is British - he is. He is also a Nigerian citizen - that is why Nigerians wanted him to play for Nigeria. The fact that he was born in Greenwich doesn't change the fact of his Nigerian citizenship.


He is not a nigerian citizen by any chance! He does not have a Nigerian passport and he was born in Ealing! Went to school in Greenford if i can add it


He is a Nigerian citizen by birth due to his parent's nationality. Boris Johnson never held an American passport but was an American citizen until he renounced his citizenship.

Aruako1, th main point is that professionally, the lad has moved on.

We shouldn't feel pained as Nigeria made no investment in him. England like any other land where Africans have settled deserve the pick of it's best talent. In this case, England have done well to recognise that this is an elite player they can't ignore.

I personally have no hard feelings. It would have been a different case I'd we had no Gareth Southgate wey nor send when it comes to racial representation and diversity in the England squad.

As long as he is in charge of the Englad squad, we should get used to hearing more bitterness like this o.


I agree. I have always stated that we should focus on the talents at home. Of course if a foreign born or raised talent comes up and wants to play for us we can consider the person.

I was only responding to incorrect claims the he is not Nigerian
