Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has revealed that his family played a big part in his decision to play for Nigeria instead of England.
Iwobi appeared for England in the youth ranks but opted to play with the African nation in 2015.
The Lagos-born 21-year-old has scored four goals in 14 appearances for Nigeria since joining the side at Under-23 level.
"I was growing up in England and England was the only national team I knew, so I was actually very pleased to play at national level," Iwobi told Soccer Laduma.
"However, my family are all from Nigeria, I was born in Nigeria, my uncle (Jay-Jay Okocha) is a legend in Nigeria.
"That's why I thought I would give it a chance. That's why I went to the Under-23s and somehow felt more welcome, and I thought it's where I belong, so I made the decision to switch."
Iwobi netted twice in Tuesday's 4-2 international friendly win over Argentina.
