Former Super Eagles forward, Patrick Pascal Nigeria says Bukayo Saka’s decision to represent England ahead of Nigeria is not a blow to the Country.
Pascal who is the current Super Eagles coordinator made this known while speaking with www.brila.net after the Arsenal youngster was included in Garrett Southgate’s squad to face Wale, Belgium, and Denmark this month.
The ex-international said Gernot Rohr has a lot of options in Saka’s position and sees no reason why his decision to represent England should be a problem for Nigeria.
“We have players that are doing well in that position, the like of Moses Simon and Samuel Kalu are good players can play in that position.”
“Chukwueze is also doing very well at the moment and I can tell you that, he will start games every week at Arsenal because he has good records as well.” He told brila.net
Pascal however advised Saka to think about his decision carefully, before committing himself totally to the Three Lions of England.
“He is young, he has time on his side, so I will advise him to think about it carefully and learn from others that were used and dumped.
“It’s not about the invitation alone, he should know that playing at major tournaments is important too”. He concluded.
