English Born Nigerian Footballer Adebayo Akinfenwa has revealed the reason why he couldn't play for Nigeria des[pite making moves at a younger age
The Big Man weighing 102kg stated in an Interview with ESPN that there were talks to make a switch to the National team but he felt it was going to be hard for him, knowing fully well that Nigeria is blessed with a lot of talented strikers and apart from that the National team haven't got any kit that can fit him.
According to him: “I was 21 when I hooked up with John Fashanu, there was talk then, but Nigeria are always blessed with great strikers so it was harder for me.
“I know there was a campaign one time to try and get me out there, but they weren’t really feeling me and that maybe they haven’t got a kit that can fit me,'' he told ESPN.
Akinfenwa has been without a national team all through his Career.
It could be recalled that in Last Month, he claimed to have been fined by his current team, Wycombe Wanderes for Wearing a Liverpool kit to training in celebration of the Reds League Triumph.
