Anthony Joshua Ready For England, Nigeria Friendly


Nigerian-born British world heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Olaseni Oluwafemi Joshua will be in the stands next Friday, to watch his parents’ country tango his nation of birth in an international friendly football match at Wembley Stadium.

The report out of Queensland indicates that Joshua will take his seat in the stands for The Three Lions’ home friendly against the Super Eagles on June 2, at the same venue where 90,000 fans cheered him to victory against Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017.

However, Joshua is uncertain over which team to give his full backing to win, as Gareth Southgate leads the Lions against the Eagles in England’s penultimate friendly before the  World Cup in Russia.

The report noted that Joshua is struggling to pick which team he will support in the clash at the famed ‘Home of Football’ in London.

Joshua, who was born in Watford, is also fiercely proud of his African roots, with a Nigeria tattoo etched for eternity on his bicep.

When ‘AJ’ was asked when he would be returning to the famous stadium, the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight world champ said: “England vs Nigeria I suppose? Just make sure you get me the easiest access point to whichever side is winning.”
