England Manager Gareth Southgate insists England are doing everything to stop Ademola Lookman switching allegiances to play for Nigeria.
Southgate on Nigeria’s interest in Lookman: “I know every country is quite aggressive in their recruiting. I know they’ve always had an interest in him but he has been in our squads, 20s, 21s, so in terms of encouragement through game time we are doing as much as we possibly can”

Although it not known what changed his stance, Pulse Sports source revealed the 20-year-old has made up his mind to play for Nigeria.
