Nedum facing international dilemna

From BBC Sport:

The invitation of 37 players to a provisional Super Eagles
squad by newly appointed coach German Berti Vogts has come under severe
criticism from the local media in Nigeria.
There were several surprise names
included in the provisional squad released by the Nigeria Football Association
(NFA) for the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Uganda on 24

One player named in the squad was our very own Nedum Onouha - born in Nigeria but who moved to the UK at a young age and joins fellow Premiership youngsters Victor Anichebe and Gabriel Agbonlahor - who admitted he is undecided over the offer.

He has represented England under-21's on a number of occasions now, but could still represent Nigeria at senior level with dispensation from FIFA.

No news from Onouha on whether he is considering representing Nigeria, but still must be considered as future England potential if he can stay injury free. His absence from the City side through injury is likely to mean he is unfit for the Nigeria game at the end of March, so he may get to wait a little longer before he has to make a decision.
