Arnaut Danjuma who is a Nigerian-born Dutch professional footballer has stated clearly that he is still open to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria despite featuring already for Holland national team.

But a new rule approved by FIFA last year means players can switch nations if they have played no more than three competitive games prior to them turning 21.

This rule has given Arnaut Danjuma and other footballers who fall into this category to select their national teams.

Already, Danjuma has played two games for Holland and even scored a goal in a friendly against Belgium.

Before being taken to Holland when he was young, the 24-year-old was born in Lagos to a Dutch dad and a Nigerian mother.

According to the report on Complete Sports, Danjuma who is currently playing for Bournemouth explained that he would soon make a decision.

“The culture is still within the family, so it’s not disregard for the Nigerian side. It’s a choice I will think about but I need some time, obviously.
“I think they are interested but obviously I play for the Dutch national team already, I scored for the national team already, so I’ve made that decision.
“With the choice, I would like to represent Holland as well but then again I’m not being called up at the moment.''
