Villarreal’s player, Danjuma reveals why he dumped Nigeria for Netherlands
Arnaut Danjuma, the Villarreal forward, has admitted that although he loves Nigeria, the Netherlands is the team after his heart.
Danjuma was rumoured to be keen in switching allegiance to the Super Eagles in the past.
However, the former Bournemouth winger was handed a late call up to the Dutch senior side 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 win of Gibraltar, after being introduced in the second half.
After the game Danjuma said: “I feel Dutch and I have always wanted to play for the team after my heart.
“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, Nigeria, but his family moved to the Netherlands. He has a Nigerian mother and a Dutch father.
