Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has revealed that Liverpool youngster Jordan Ibe will prefer to play for England seniors rather than Nigeria.
Ibe qualifies for Nigeria through his father, while the winger has played for England at age-grade level.
Oliseh confirmed on Sunday via Twitter that Ibe’s family informed him about their son’s decision.
He however went on to wish the 19-year-old all the best.
“Jordon Ibe’s family informed me by a telephone call, that he was giving priority to an England call-up,” Oliseh wrote. “We wish them well.”
In August, Oliseh made a personal approach to try and persuade the winger to switch his international allegiance from England.
Ibe was in action for Liverpool in their 3-1 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.
