‘Eze and Olise next’- Nigerians express their excitement following the news about Lookman

The Leicester City attacker has expressed his wish to represent the three-time African champions at international level

Nigerians have expressed their excitement following the news that Leicester City winger Ademola Lookman has decided to represent the Super Eagles.

Lookman was born in England to Nigerian parents, meaning he is eligible to play for either country at international level.

Although he has represented the Three Lions at youth level, winning the U20 World Cup, the former Everton winger has decided to play for his parent’s country at the national team level.

Nigerian football fans could not contain their excitement following the news, taking to their social media accounts to praise Lookman’s decision.

A couple of them believe the Super Eagles are now well-equipped to win next year’s Africa Cup of Nations, while some hope the likes of Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze can follow suit.

Meanwhile, Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that the 24-year-old is in his 40-man provisional squad for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
