Most of this lads get this thing wrong. First they play hard to get, when they now realise England won’t caĺl them up, they then try this line of granting interviews and openly admitting they’ll commit to Nigeria.
I blame the Nigerian Football Federation though for most of this

Dominic Iorfa of @swfc says he is ready to commit to play for Nigeria. Get your Nigerian passport, call the coach and the NFF and state that you are ready. Then wait for your chance. Nigeria won’t chase anybody, the players have to make the move. Talking to a camera is not enough https://t.co/MpFXka5lpm
