Toronto FC striker Akinola ditches Nigeria & USA for Canada

The 21-year-old, initially eligible to play for three countries, has chosen the team he wants to represent on the international scene
Toronto FC forward Ayo Akinola has snubbed Nigeria and the United States of America to commit his international future to Canada.

Akinola was eligible to play for the Super Eagles through his father's origin and the USA, which was his place of birth.

He was approached by the Nigeria Football Federation a few years ago, but he was invited to the United States national team last year and he made a goalscoring debut in their 6-0 thrashing of El Salvador in December 2020.
