Ross Barkley Eligible For Nigeria Through His Dad, Peter Effanga
Everton wonder-kid Ross Barkley, who has caps for England youth teams, had told the official website of The Toffees that he was eligible to represent Nigeria. 

Kickoffnigeria.com has been doing some digging on Barkley's claim, and writes on its website that his eligibility comes through his father, Peter Effanga, who resides in Liverpool and works at Getrag Ford Transmission plant.

It is being reported that Ross Barkley is answering his mother's maiden name because he does not have a cordial relationship with his dad.

Barkley, who is heralded as one of the brightest prospects in British football, is contracted to Everton until 2016.
