He wore the Nigeria jersey for a few minutes in a friendly match against Ukraine in September 2019. But Josh Maja could turn his back on the Super Eagles.
In an interview for the TouchlineFracas site, the Bordeaux player hinted that the choice of Nigeria is not entirely final.
“I felt very good during this selection. I entered the field for 5 minutes, perhaps. It’s the best for my family to play for my country. It went well, it was satisfying. If that means I have chosen my country? It was a friendly match, so I always have the choice of my selection, “he said in comments translated by Girondins4ever.
Josh Maja, a 6-year Ligue 1 goalie this season, born near London, will still have the opportunity to play for the England team if he does not play an official match with the Super Eagles.
