The Arsenal midfielder, 21, played in Three Lions youth teams before deciding to play international football for the country where he was born.

“Originally, I’m from Nigeria. I always felt comfortable there. It was a hard decision because I’d played for England but I felt more at home there. When I first went they treated me like royalty, like a king. It’s a big thing there to play for Arsenal too.”
