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.
