Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo insists his aim is to force his way into England’s squad and not in any way thinking about Nigeria.
In the last couple of years, the NFF has successfully convinced the likes of Ademola Lookman, Ola Aina, and Alex Iwobi to switch allegiance from England for Nigeria, and Adarabioyo appeared to be another target.
Adarabioyo who has played for England at the youth level is yet to be capped at the senior, which means he’s still eligible to represent Nigeria.
The Nigeria Football Federation officials approached the former Manchester City player in the past but revealed he hasn’t decided on his international future.
However, in an interview with the UK Sun on Monday, Adarabioyo who also has Nigerian parents said, representing England is his priority.
The 24-year-old added that he has the quality to play for the Three Lions of England, and playing in the Premier League next season will improve his chances of getting a call-up.
“I’ve definitely got the quality to be in the England squad. Every player’s concentration has to be on getting to the World Cup this winter — and that’s my goal.”
“I knew because I was playing in the Championship, that it wasn’t going to be possible to get a call-up but it’s definitely possible now.
“My ambition this season had to be just to play every week for Fulham and get them back into the Premier League.” He told the Sun.
