Manchester United’s Oyedele chooses between Poland, Nigeria, England


Manchester United midfielder, Maximilian Oyedele, has committed his international future to Poland over Nigeria and England.

This was disclosed by Maciej Chorazyk, the head of foreign scouting Poland Football Association.

Oyedele, a first-year scholar at Man United, is eligible to represent Poland through his mom, Nigeria through his father, and England, where he was born.

He made his international debut on Wednesday as Poland U18s played a 2-2 draw against Switzerland in a non-binding game.

The Anglo-Polish-Nigerian youngster could have made his debut for the Poland youth team earlier, but he did not have a Polish passport and the COVID-19 pandemic was another stumbling block.

“Maxi has an ID card and a Polish passport. He speaks Polish poorly but understands a lot,” Chorazyk told WP SportoweFakty.

“In this case, we watched him all the time and were close to him.

“I don’t see an option for him to want to change to a different representation. He wants to play for us.

“This is a multi-functional player who can play in the six and eight.”
