Danjuma Puts Holland Ahead Of Nigeria Duty


Club Brugge of Belgium’s Nigerian-born winger, Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld has confessed that his first thought for international duty is Holland, and he is eagerly awaiting his first international invitation.

Although he had stated last weekend that he would one day love to play for the Super Eagles, Danjuma has now emphasised that his first point is for the Dutch national team, Le Oranj.

Consequently, Danjuma admitted that he hopes to soon be capped at full international level by Holland, though he is also eligible to play for Nigeria.

The 21-year-old left winger, who was born in Lagos and has caught the eye with his line of dazzling displays for Brugge, is already an U21 international with Holland and is looking forward to playing for the senior national team.

Ironically, Danjuma, who can also play as a second striker, was released by PSV from their under-19 before he went on to make his mark with another Dutch club, NEC, and is now making waves with Brugge.

Danjuma, who has three goals in six league games this season, said: “The more matches I play, the more people I could convince I can add value to the national team of Holland.

“I can say I want to go to the big Oranje. I will make sure I play well for Club Brugge and also add value against Scotland U21s.”
