NFF, Rohr must secure allegiance of Everton starlet now 

 

While we are still basking in the euphoria of the five goals scored by Odion Ighalo in two matches against Libya, it may not be a bad idea if more firepower is added to the Super Eagles.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and Coach Gernot Rohr must approach Everton striker, Lookman Ademola to commit his international future to Nigeria having represented England at age grade level.
Though Rohr has said he expects the player to show enough interest in order to be considered for the senior national team, I however believe delaying his invitation and paper work may see Nigeria losing him to England soon especially if he impressed in some matches for his Premiership club.
Losing Arnaut Danjuma to Netherlands was a pill too bitter to swallow and it will be another setback if we should lose another promising talent to another European nation this time.
Having Lookman who impressed on loan at Hoffenheim last season will provide the gaffer more options in attack with Ighalo almost on the wrong side of his age already.
