Liverpool's Adekanye Considering Playing For Nigeria

Liverpool winger Bobby Adekanye is still considering whether or not he will commit his international future to the country of his birth, Nigeria.
Born in Ibadan to Nigerian parents, the former Barcelona teenage sensation qualifies to play for the Netherlands and has caps for their youth teams, but has not added to his international appearances since 2015.
 ''No, I have not made a choice yet. I'm not busy with that either. That will happen in the future,'' Adekanye told voetbalzone.nl.
Three years ago, coach Emmanuel Amuneke challenged the youngster to come to the Golden Eaglets camp to prove his mettle, without formally inviting him to the screening exercise held in Abuja.

Adekanye made his first appearance for Netherlands U16s in their goalless draw with Spain at the UEFA Development Tournament in February 2015.

Eight months later, he played competitively for the U17s during the European Under-17 Championship qualifiers.

The 18-year-old scored twice and created two assists in Liverpool's 4-1 win at Maribor in the UEFA Youth League on Tuesday afternoon.
