‘I respect England but I’ve no regret choosing Nigeria’ – Alex Iwobi

Fulham and Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi has said he has no regret in choosing Nigeria over England.

Speaking in an interview with Kiss Fresh, London, Iwobi stated he respects England but feels more at home in Nigeria.

He added that football in Nigeria is like a festival, stressing that the entertaining atmosphere in Nigerian stadia gives him a sense of belonging.

“I actually felt more at home in Nigeria. Football out there is like a festival, it’s like a party. You go into the game, you see people blowing trumpets, and drums, it doesn’t even feel like a proper match. I was like, ‘Yeah, this is where I belong.’

“Of course, I have respect for England but I have no regret in choosing Nigeria.”

Iwobi represented England up to under-18 level. He made his senior international debut for Nigeria in October 2015.
