Ibe chooses England
Liverpool’s highly-rated youngster Jordon Ibe will not be playing for Nigeria after choosing England as his international team.
Ibe, who has lived in London all his life, is a Nigerian by birth because of his father, but has chosen not to play for the Super Eagles according to manager Sunday Oliseh.
Oliseh revealed that he had held discussions with the Liverpool starlet to play for the Eagles, but talks fell through.
“Jordon Ibe’s family informed me by a telephone call, that he was giving priority to an England call-up. We wish them well,” Oliseh tweeted.
England boss Roy Hodgson has been aware of Nigeria’s interest in Ibe, but admitted he won’t rush to give him a call-up just to lock him up.
