Liverpool star reported to have chosen to be eligible for England

Liverpool young forward has apparently chosen to represent England rather than the country of his father Nigeria, according to the Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh.

“Jordon Ibe’s family informed me by a telephone call, that he was giving priority to an England call-up. We wish them well” Oliseh revealed.

England boss Hodgson for his part said this about the Ibe situation

“The fact is he’s playing for the Under-21s. They play for the Under-21s because they want to play for England.

“But my attitude for that is quite clear – I want players who want to play for England. I am not going to start making players English by giving them a few minutes in games.

“I want Jordon to fight for his place in the team like everyone else. He is certainly a player we like very much and certainly a player we have eyes on.

“It’s far from impossible that he gets called up in one of the next games. But if we do call him up it won’t be because we are worried about other nations.”

This is good news for England that is for sure, Ibe has immense talent and could be a star of the future.
