Ikechi Anya Reveals Reasons For Choosing Scotland Instead Of NigeriaWatford attacker Ikechi Anya says he is not regretting his decision to represent Scotland instead of the Super Eagles.

Born to a Nigerian dad and a Romanian mom, he could have represented the two countries and England, but he chose to defend the colours of the Tartan Army.

If manager Gordon Strachan fields him at Craven Cottage tomorrow, it would be his sixth appearance for Scotland’s National Team.

“My love of football developed when I was in Scotland so I was always going for that - for me it was always going to be Scotland.

“That was where I started playing football at school and where I learned everything. That was one of the main reasons I chose Scotland when I knew they were interested.

“When I was really young I was in Nigeria but I cant remember it. I appreciate the Nigerian side from my father and the Romanian side of my mother but that is them and I chose Scotland,”Anya said to stv.tv.

The 26 - year - old sported Scotland’s jersey for the first time last September against Belgium in a World Cup qualifying fixture.
