Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has confirmed and explained why he intends to play for England at senior level, rather than Nigeria.
Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh had approached Ibe and met with the 19-year-old’s representatives, but Ibe’s parents recently informed Oliseh that their son preferred England.
Ibe, whose father is Nigerian, gives the reason for his decision.
Ibe told Liverpool’s website on Tuesday: “It was my choice and it feels the right choice for me.
“I was born here (England) and have played in the younger age groups. I want to take it up to the first team one day.”
England boss Roy Hodgson has so far refused to give Ibe a senior debut.
Hogson said: “The fact is he’s playing for the Under-21s. They play for the Under-21s because they want to play for England.
“I want Jordon to fight for his place in the team like everyone else. He is certainly a player we like very much and certainly a player we have eyes on.
“It’s far from impossible that he gets called up in one of the next games. But if we do call him up it won’t be because we are worried about other nations.”4years ago My wife left me,because i was too WEAK in bed,but today she calls me Bed Champion.Now i finally discovered a Natural Solution that forces women to ask for more.
