Chelsea new-boy ignites Nigeria switch comments with kit flaunt

Chelsea’s new signing, Tosin Adarabioyo, has ignited speculation about a potential switch to the Nigerian national team, the Super Eagles.

This follows a viral post on social media platform X, featuring Adarabioyo in a Super Eagles jacket, which has sparked significant reactions.

Background and Eligibility

Adarabioyo, born in London to Nigerian parents, has previously represented England at various junior levels but has yet to make his senior debut for the Three Lions. This makes him eligible to switch allegiance and play for Nigeria.

In 2020, Adarabioyo reportedly turned down an initial approach from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). However, he expressed a willingness to play in the 2022 World Cup, leaving the door open for potential selection by either England or Nigeria.

Social Media Buzz

The recent buzz began when X user Yimzy posted a picture of Adarabioyo wearing the Super Eagles’ green and white jacket emblazoned with the NFF logo. The caption read, “Tosin Adarabioyo. One thing about Naija boys, they always got Steeze.”

This post quickly garnered attention and reactions from fans, with many expressing excitement at the prospect of Adarabioyo playing for Nigeria.

Fan Reactions

Big DON commented, “This one is not wasting his days waiting for England to call up. Niceeeee to see.”

COLDPLAY added, “Bro just telling the super eagles to come get him. I’ll be there.”

Another fan questioned, “Has he declared for Nigeria?”

What This Means for the Super Eagles

If Adarabioyo decides to switch allegiance, it could be a significant boost for the Super Eagles. His addition would strengthen the defensive options for Nigeria, given his experience in the Premier League and his impressive performances at the club level.

While Tosin Adarabioyo has not officially declared his allegiance to the Nigerian national team, the social media buzz and his recent appearances suggest a potential shift. Nigerian football fans and the NFF will be watching closely to see if he makes a formal commitment to the Super Eagles.
