Kevin Akpoguma, Hoffenheim star, confirms readiness to play for Nigeria, see what he said

Kevin Akpoguma says he is ready to play for the Super Eagles, a 25-year-old defender who has played for Germany in youth competitions.

Akpoguma was born to a German mother and Nigerian father. Kevin Akpoguma, who currently plays for Germany, confirmed to Hoffenheim his willingness to play for three-time African champions Nigeria.

This means that the 25-year-old defender has no interest in playing for the older German men's national team, despite playing for his youth team.

Kevin was born in Germany to a Nigerian father and a German mother and has played over 60 matches for German teams under 16, 17, 18, 19 and under 20 years.

However, because Kevin Akpoguma does not play for the adult team, he is still eligible to play for the Nigerian Super Eagles.

Tireless Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has told another key player in the team to leave Akpoguma, who has played for Hoffenheim for five years and made 18 games for the country last season when he finished sixth in the final.

The former Hanoverian 96 star told the Hoffenheim website he was ready to play for the Super Eagles under Gernot Rohr - a mistake the Nigerian side made.

Kevin Akpoguma said below. "I've thought about it for a long time. Now I'm at an age where I have European experience with TSG and I feel ready to play for my home country." It makes me very proud and I am very excited. I am very happy to know this team.

“Recently Nigeria missed the opportunity to have Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori choose England as their national team.

Hoffenheim star Kevin Akpoguma has confirmed his readiness to play for Nigeria. Algeria is likely to face big players against the Nigerian Super Eagles without six key players as the two teams prepare for an epic friendly scheduled for October 9. Arsenal Star Complete Sports signed.

Citing africanfootballhq.com, it was reported that Yousef Atal and his Nice teammate Hitcham Budaui were injured and both players were excluded from the crash.

Desert Foxes coach Jamel Belmadi will also face Saudi Arabia's Jamel Benlamiri and Yousef Belaili, who were part of the team that helped African nations win.
