Arnaut Danjuma, Villarreal forward, has said he could still play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, if he does not get playing time with the Dutch senior national team.
Danjuma was rumoured to be keen on switching allegiance to Nigeria.
However, the former Bournemouth winger was handed a late call up to the Holland team by Louis Van Gaal for their 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Gibraltar.
The 24-year-old marked his debut for the Oranje by scoring in the 6-0 thumping of Gibraltar on October 11, after coming on as a second half substitute.
“I feel Dutch and I have always wanted to play for the team after my heart,” he said after the match.
“Nigeria is a country I love but playing for them is an option I see as a fall back if I don’t get my chance here. I’m here now and I want to make it count.”
Danjuma was born in Lagos to a Nigerian mother and a Dutch father.
His family relocated to the Netherlands after living in Nigeria for several years.
