Akpoguma, who was linked with the Super Eagles before the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, was born to a German mother and Nigerian father is eligible to play for the Super Eagles. However the footballer, who has played across various youth levels and even captained the German U-20 team that knocked out Nigeria’s U-20 team Flying Eagles in the quarterfinal stage of the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup, stated he might consider a Super Eagles offer if he doesn’t get a Germany call-up to the senior team.

He said, ”The thing is that I was born in Germany and I have played for all the youth teams of Germany and I am still a young player.”

According to him though his father is from Nigeria, he is open to playing for the Super Eagles only if he is not able to play for Germany in the nearest future.

”So, I want to leave it open because Germany can still call me. But if I have no other option to play for Germany, then It will be an honour to play for Nigeria because my dad is from Nigeria” he added.

  1. is even good that he disclosed this before it is too late so Nigeria should be praying that Germany did not call you back.

  2. Why are players like this ? He can never get a call up from Germany . Never . He should just accept Nigeria and move on with his career

  3. Let the will of God be done if you will play for your country he will definetly make a way for that so that you will make us proud

  4. If you know you want to play for Nigeria let’s know and we decide it. If they called you then you leave that’s rubbish. Just decide and tell us who you want to play for Nigeria or Germany??? You suppose to support your father land but you are going toward you mother land.

  5. Akpoguma… Someone should please speak the truth to him. If he.his that good,why up till now the Germany coach have placed a call up to him. Nigeria should not be an option to him.
