Zirkzee Joshua Bayern striker Snub Nigeria Prefer Holland
April 21, 2020
Nigeria have been rejected in their chase for Joshua Zirkzee as the Bayern Munich striker making interest to play for the Netherlands instead of Nigeria.
JOSHUA born to Nigeria parents in Holland attracted interest from the three-time African champions after finding his way into Bayern Munich’s first-team this season.
Despite playing for the Dutch youth teams, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr have reportedly approached the Bayern Munich forward over his international future.
The 18-year-old made his Bayern Munich debut in a Champions League match against Tottenham back in December, and he has scored three goals in five Bundesliga outings since then.
He is hoping to cap his maiden campaign in the first-team with silverware.
Following the postponement of the European Championship to 2021, Zirkzee fancies his chances of playing for the Dutch national team.
When he was asked about playing for Holland in the competition, he told VTBL: “No, I’m not really working on that yet. I’m not a regular based player here, so I don’t think I should think about it then, but I have also seen how fast things can go, so of course, it is very secretly in the back of your mind.
