Lookman was eligible to play for both countries, but he decided to pitch his tent with Nigeria at the senior level.

The former RB Leipzig star has been a revelation in Italy this season, scoring 12 goals in 20 Serie A appearances for Atalanta.

He represented England at the youth level before switching his international allegiance to Nigeria after FIFA approval in 2022.

Lookman said he is happy to represent Nigeria in an interview with L’Eco di Bergamo.

“I have no regrets, I took the right decision. This is my career,” he said.

“I always want to play for Nigeria and I’m proud of this. I was born in England, but my family is from Nigeria and I have a strong bond with both countries.”

Lookman made his Super Eagles debut against Ghana in the FIFA World Cup play-off against Ghana in 2022.

The 25-year-old was born in Wandsworth, South West London to Nigerian parents.
