Werder Bremen youngster, Felix Agu, who was born in Germany has stated that he is open to representing the Nigerian national team and is awaiting word from manager Gernot Rohr ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
Rohr approached the talented right-back about donning the Super Eagles shirt back in 2019, but he declined because he was already a member of Germany’s U21 national squad.
However, the 22-year-old is ineligible for the Germany U21s and wishes to swutch his allegiance to Nigeria, where his father was born.
He only played two friendlies for Germany’s young squad, therefore he won’t need to apply for a one-time change of association from Germany to Nigeria before representing his ancestral home.
The Osnabrück born was asked if he has been contacted by Rohr in recently time, Agu said to Deich Stube : “I haven’t heard anything for a long time. Maybe it will come again.
“At that time I canceled the Nigerian Association because I wanted to go to the German U21s first. Up until then I had never been to the national team and I wanted to get used to it.
“Now my time with the U21 is over. But it wasn’t a decision against Nigeria, it was a decision to keep my surroundings that are more or less familiar. Now I am open to the topic.”
Agu has made 40 appearances in the German 2. Bundesliga and has eight assists to his name, while he palyed fifteen games during his time in the top-flight.
