Joe Aribo reveals why he snubbed England for Nigeria

NIGERIA – Rangers midfielder, Joe Aribo, has spoken about his decision to pledge his international future to Nigeria over England.


Aribo made his debut for the Super Eagles, in a 2-2 draw with Ukraine, in a friendly match.

In an interview with the Eagles’ Media Team via YouTube, he replaced the reason behind his choice.

He said: “I think it is the love of playing for your home nation, there is just so much love there and you receive so much love so that’s one thing that drove me to wanting to play for Nigeria.”

Aribo, who can play several roles in midfield, highlighted his best position on the pitch.

“Definitely box-to-box midfielder, I’d say that’s the best one for me because I like to get up the pitch and use my energy in the game,” he added.
