The PSV youngster is eligible to represent both Nigeria and England at the international level
PSV Eindhoven forward, Noni Madueke has dropped a hint on the country he wishes to represent. The youngster was born to Nigerian parents in England, making him eligible to represent either of the two countries.
The PSV ace has been the subject of many transfer talks this summer, and it is no surprise considering his sensational record of 13 goals and seven assists since breaking into the first team at The Phillips Stadion.
His club career hasn’t been the only thing in question, however, as he hasn’t openly stated the country he would represent on the international stage.
All that looks to have come to an end as the former Tottenham prodigy has stated his desire to emulate the likes of Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho by playing in the Euros and the World Cup.
Speaking to the Sun, the forward stated his belief in his ability to break into the England squad.
“I’m very confident in myself. In my head, there’s no limits to what I can do.”
“You never know how football goes. I try to take every day as it comes. My bread and butter is my club.”
“If I’m winning games with my club, if I could be at the World Cup in 15 months, it would be great.”
Madueke has played for England at youth level, and with the spectacular ability that he has shown in the last two years, it would only take a matter of time before he gets the call up to represent England.
He has never stated his desire to represent Nigeria.
