Sheffield Wednesday star man Dominic Ifora is set to be called up to the Nigerian national side after impressing in the championship last season. Since emerging from Kenny Jacketts Wolves team he has now played over 160 championship games and he was voted player of the season by Sheffield Wednesday.
The player has just turned 25 and he is maturing nicely as he has transformed from a strong full back to a commanding centre half that most strikers in the championship do not want to face. It is common knowlege that club scouts in the premier league have been watching the player develop.
His father played international football for Nigeria but Dominic also represented England u18-u20-u21 and Gareth Southgate managed him for the England under 21s. A honest grounded type and he has already been drafted into the England senior camp in 2015. Sources close to England say Ifora is rated and there has always been a potential pathway to the full England squad due to the players history and development.
However Nigerian selectors are ready to offer him the opportunity to pair up at the back with Semi Ajayi of West Brom as the Super Eagles plan to start playing again after the covid-19 breakout. Can England’s loss be Nigeria’s gain?
