Tottenham Hotspur-owned midfielder Luke Amos is open to representing the Nigeria national team, if his latest social media post is anything to go by,
Born in London, Amos qualifies to represent the Super Eagles through his Nigerian father, but it’s England who have approached him first and he has two caps for the Young Lions at U18 level.Six months ago,the Queens Park Rangers star was sounded out about the prospect of turning out for the three-time African champions and he refused to rule out the possibility of switching his international allegiance from England to Nigeria.
There’s every indication that Amos is on the radar of the Nigeria Football Federation, with Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr recently stating that there are some good Nigeria-eligible players in Queens Park Rangers, without revealing their identities.
Amos posted on Instagram with a photo of him wearing a Super Eagles training kit : “PROUD NIGERIAN💚🦅 Not so proud of no trim for 3 months but truly thankful for the life I live and for all that I am. (As you can tell I’m also proud of my 1st ever BBQ😂👨🏽🍳”.
Amos does not have to apply for a change of association because the two games he played for England U18s were non-binding – friendlies against Switzerland and Russia in 2015.
The 23-year-old has featured in 25 matches for Queens Park Rangers in the Championship this season and registered his name on the scoresheet twice.
