22-year-old English-born Nigerian defender, Dominic Iorfa, has expressed his desire to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the future if the opportunity presents its self.

The defender, who is the son of former Nigerian international, Dominic Iorfa, told Ipswich town’s Magazine that his dad has a lot of influence on his career and wants him to play for Nigeria.

“Maybe my Dad would like me to play for Nigeria in the future, we will see but he understands it’s a big year for me and my priority is to progress with Ipswich.

“He has always been there for me and I have taken his advice. He has been in my shoes, so he knows what it’s all about,” Iorfa said.

The Ipswich Town defender (on loan from Wolves) in the English Championship, can play as a centre-back and also as a right-back. He has played for the England youth setup across all age grades and won the Toulon Invitational Tournament in 2016. Before then, he was once called up to train with the senior England side alongside the likes of Wayne Rooney and Raheem Sterling.
