Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is not too happy with star player Alex Iwobi for playing for Nigeria, and not England.
He has represented England at youth level before playing for Nigeria at senior level. Iwobi made seven appearances for England’s under-16, three for under-17 and one for under-18; but the player stop getting invitations.
Wenger said in January that the star ought to be playing for England and not Nigeria. He also added, “he played for the England youth teams for a while but when it came to the under-19s, they didn’t pick him.”
The player will be available for Arsenal in January as Nigeria failed to qualify for next year Africa Cup of Nations.
Iwobi also admitted that he would have “loved” to play for England.
Iwobi will have a better chance of playing more international games for Nigeria than England; taking into account the number of stars playing the same position as Iwobi in the England squad.
