Lookman, Ejaria Finally Get FIFA Clearance To Play For S’Eagles


FIFA have finally cleared Ademola Lookman and Ovie Ejaria to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

This is coming after several anxious months of back and forth with the world football governing body and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Forward Lookman and midfielder Ejaria have previously featured for England at various age-grade levels but have now opted to play for Nigeria, where their parents were born.

Lookman plays for Red Bull Leipzig but was on loan at Fulham in the Premier League in England this past season.

He is a direct-playing forward and weighs in with his own fair share of goals and assists.

Ejaria, on the other hand, is a creative central midfielder with Reading FC in the English Championship.

The 23-year-old player was previously on the books of Premier League outfit Liverpool.
