Bayer Leverkusen forward Nathan Tella picks Nigeria over England

Bayer Leverkusen forward, Nathan Tella has picked Nigeria over England for his International Career. SportsRation reports.

Tella who last season represented Burnley in the English Championship , joined German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen in the summer and has played three games so far.

Just yesterday, his club teammate, Victor Boniface received his second call-up to represent the Nigeria National team, a  privilege Tella said , he will be happy to get.

” I’ve always said for the last three or four years that Nigeria is a big part of my life – even though I’ve been an ‘England boy’ from London all my life,” Tella said per Bild.

“If I got the chance to play for Nigeria, I would be more than happy and accept it. I’ve already told my parents and friends that I would do that.

“You’re not just nominated like that. You have to work for it and earn it. I want to prove myself here if I get the chance to play. I want to develop further, help the team and the club – if a call comes for an international call-up, that would be a bonus.” Tella remarked.
