Former England striker, Peter Crouch keen to represent the Super Eagles

Amidst rumours of Harry Redknapp's arrival, the former England striker appears keen to switch nationality and turn out for the West African giants!

Peter Crouch looks set to be the next England-born player to turn out for Nigeria’s Super Eagles…at least if his latest cheeky tweet is to be believed.

The former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur striker responded to rumours that the Nigeria Football Federation are considering a move to recruit Harry Redknapp to replace Gernot Rohr by throwing his hat into the ring for an international switch!

“So excited to get my Nigerian passport through today,” Crouch tweeted on Tuesday. “Go Super Eagles.”

Unfortunately for any Nigeria fans hopeful of the 39-year-old forward coming out of retirement to don the famous green of the Super Eagles, Fifa guidelines outline that players who represent one nation in competitive fixtures are not allowed to switch nationality.

This would prevent 42-cap ex-England man Crouch from ever turning out for his beloved Super Eagles!
