🇳🇬 Arsenal youngster chooses Nigeria over England and Uganda

Arsenal goalkeeper Ovie Ejeheri has pledged his international future to Nigeria, rather than Uganda and England of whom he is eligible. 

The Hale End Academy player was set to be called up the Golden Eaglets squad but he's currently undergoing rehabilitation from a small tear in his medial meniscus.

Speaking through his representative Segun Jegede of Utmostt Sports Management London, Ejeheri told All Nigeria: ''I was born in Greenwich, London and I'm eligible to represent Nigeria, Uganda and England.

''I hope to play for the Nigerian national team someday if the opportunity arises. It would be a great privilege to win international trophies with them''.

''I am a good shot-stopper with a lot of confidence and I control my backline very well, I like the way Buffon plays but I wouldn't say I play like him, I am Ovie Ejeheri.

''Arsenal is a very structured club with detailed plans for each of the players in the academy system.

''I am being prepared for what will surprise a lot of people in the football industry.

''I have been at Arsenal since age five, I am happy to be part of such a big and successful club,'' he told.
