England Call-Up For Tottenham, Arsenal Starlets Of Nigerian DescentPublished: August 20, 2018
Two players of Nigerian descent have been named in the England U16 squad for the UEFA Development Tournament holding at St George's Park.
Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Oluwatobi Oluwayemi and Arsenal striker Malcolm Ebiowei have been included on the roster by manager Kevin Betsy for the upcoming games against Scotland and Turkey.
Chelsea goalkeeper Kelechi Chibueze who was in goal against Croatia last month has been omitted from the squad list.
Oluwatobi should not be confused with Joshua Oluwayemi, who is also a goalkeeper on the book of Spurs and has played for the Young Lions at U15 and U16 level, though they are brothers.
Free-kick expert Malcolm Ebiowei has caps for Netherlands U15 national team; the English FA have now thrown their hat into the ring in terms of convincing him to choose England ahead of the two other countries he's eligible to represent.
Still only 14, he was an unused substitute in Arsenal's last match in the U18 Premier League last season.
