In an interview with BT, he made it clear his international future lies with Denmark.

Billing was born to a Nigerian father and Danish mother, making him eligible to represent both countries.

The player has been called up by the Denmark senior team several times, but was a non-playing substitute six times.

“It would be strange to play for Nigeria when I feel 100 percent Danish.

“Of course I have Nigerian roots and I’m half Nigerian, but I was raised and born in Denmark.

“I have Danish mother, Danish little brother and Danish little sister and a Nigerian father. But this is Denmark I want to play for. That’s my big dream,” Billing said.
