The Super Eagles of Nigeria have received a huge boost ahead of their World Cup qualifiers double-header against Ghana after FIFA approved the switch of Ademola Loookman.
Lookman, 24, an academy product of Charlton and Everton recently switched his allegiances from England to Nigeria after meeting with NFF chiefs.
Born in England to Nigerian parents, Ademola Lookman has represented England at the under-age group playing a total of 31 games for their U-17,19, and U-21 but felt it was time to represent his fatherland Nigeria.
The Leipzig attacker currently on loan at Leicester City would have been part of the Nigeria team to the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations but was denied by FIFA as they had not approved his application.
Now, the world governing body has approved his application and he can now wear the green jersey of Nigeria starting from Super Eagles games against Ghana, according to a popular journalist, Rob Harris who is reportedly close to the Ademola Lookman.
Super Eagles will play the first leg of the qualifiers in Cape Coast Stadium on Wednesday, 23rd March, or Thursday, 24th March.
And the return leg is to be played at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Sunday, 27th March.
Ademola Lookman if called by coach Austin Eguavoen will be on the parade and would definitely be a huge boost for Nigeria.
