Arsenal’s 17-year-old goalkeeper Ovie Ejeheri is the current football hotcake as England, Nigeria and Uganda are in a race to win his international allegiance.
Ejeheri was born in Greenwich, London and is eligible to play for England, Nigeria and Uganda.
The highly-rated teenage keeper has attracted the England FA and has already been invited to join their age group goalkeeper training camps in December.
However, the Hale End Academy graduate has already revealed he wants to represent Nigeria at the international level, according to allnigeriasoccer.com.
”I was born in Greenwich, London and I’m eligible to represent Nigeria, Uganda and England.” Ejeheri was quoted saying.
”I hope to play for the Nigerian National Team some day if the opportunity arises. It would be a great privilege to win international trophies with them”.
Ejeheri who has been in Arsenal’s academy since he was five, is currently a second year scholar at the club and could be offered a professional deal in the coming years if he impresses the academy coaches.
Alex Iwobi was also a graduate of Arsenal’s Hale End Academy and played in England youth squad before switching allegiance to Nigeria.
