Everton striker Victor Anichebe is set to commit his international future to Nigeria.
The highly-rated teenager was born in Lagos but his family moved to Merseyside when he was just one, making him eligible to play for both Nigeria and England.
Both nations have already selected Anichebe, but he withdrew from England's Under-19 match against Holland in August and was unable to represent Nigeria Under-20s in September due to injury.
He is still determined to pledge his allegiance to the country of his birth though, and is hoping to be called up again soon.
"I would want to represent Nigeria because that is where I'm from," he explained.
"I went back there every Christmas and have a lot of family there. We moved to England when I was just a one-year-old, but I still feel Nigerian."
Anichebe has broken into the Everton team this season and David Moyes was delighted with his performance in the 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough on Boxing Day.
"(Emanuel) Pogatetz and (Jonathan) Woodgate will certainly know they have had a game," said Moyes.
"Victor will get much better with experience as he matures. His all round game is getting better and he was a handful for the defenders in the contest."
