Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has confirmed that Liverpool youngster, Jordan Ibe, will not play for the country. The coach said this was made known to him by Jordan’s family. According to him, the family had told him that their son was giving priority to England. Ibe has since received his first England Under-21 call-up earlier this month. It is still unclear whether he will get a call-up from the senior squad.
Hodgson said of Ibe this month: “People play for the England Under-21s because they want to play for England. “If we do call him up it won’t be because we are worried about other nations.”
