Manchester United’s Tosin Kehinde Chooses Nigeria Over England

Manchester United’s under-23 squad player Tosin Kehinde has set his sights on playing for Nigeria and has already made moves to become a Super Eagle. The 19-year-old, who was born in Lagos and raised in the United Kingdom, is eligible to play for both Nigeria and England.

He was said to have met with Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) officials last weekend in London to start the process of formalising his Nigerian footballing status. Kehinde said he wants to follow in the footsteps of Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi who opted to play for the Super Eagles instead of England in 2015.

He also disclosed that his decision was prompted by some former and present Nigerian players whom he had always looked up to, including Jay-Jay Okocha and Mikel Obi.
