Charlton Wonderkid Dubbed The New Moussa Dembele Reveals He Will Not Reject Nigeria Call UpThe highly-rated Charlton Athletic midfielder Joe Aribo is keeping his options open regarding his international future and has revealed that he has not yet been approached by the Nigeria Football Federation.

Born in London, Camberwell to Nigerian parents, Aribo’s performances for the Addicks Development squad have not gone unnoticed back in Nigeria, with the player winning the club’s Goal of the Month for September.

“I can play for both Nigeria and England, I’m open to playing for both but I have not had any contact with the Nigerian Federation or their reps, ” Aribo told allnigeriasoccer.com.

“My strengths are I am able to move around the pitch with energy and passing, my weaknesses are my weaker foot and heading.

“I model my game after Tottenham Hotspur’s Moussa Dembélé because he is a left footed midfielder like me. ”

The 20-year-old Joe Aribo starred for St Mark’s Academy, Mitcham and Staines Town before he was acquired by Charlton Athletic a year ago.
