Destiny Udogie to snub Nigeria


Italian-Nigerian defender Destiny Udogie is set to snub Nigeria in favour of Italy, his intention was made known through agent Ferdinando Guarino according to

The Udinese defender who was sent back on loan from Tottenham Hotspur after the London outfit purchased the player, has already represented Italy’s Under 21.

Ferdinando Guarino claims that Destiny Udogie has his heart set on representing Italy over Nigeria.

“Doogie is a player monitored by the senior national team,” Guarino said.

“This time we were hoping for a call-up but he was called up anyway with the ‘U-21, really showing a particular attachment to the national team.

“He had a physical problem – due to a clash on the pitch in the last championship against Inter – and despite not being at 100%, he gave his contribution, tightening his teeth and playing important matches against England and Japan.

“He has a great attachment to the Azzurri shirt; there will still be time for the senior national team. The goal is that. He is Italian, born in Italy, who feels the blue shirt and is proving it.”
