Lookman had earlier represented England at the youth level before switching his allegiance to Nigeria following the FIFA approval to play for Nigeria on February 10, 2022.

The 25-year-old attacker who disclosed this in an interview with an Italian news platform, L’Eco di Bergamo, insisted that he is happy with the decision to represent the three-time African champions.

“I have no regrets, I took the right decision. This is my career,” he said.

“I always want to play for Nigeria and I’m proud of this. I was born in England, but my family is from Nigeria and I have a strong bond with both countries.”
