Agent says Tottenham star chooses Italy over Nigeria internationally
Posted : 20 September 2023
Agent Stefano Antonelli has confirmed that Tottenham left-back Destiny Udogie, who was born in Italy to Nigerian parents, has chosen to represent Italy in international soccer.
Udogie has impressed Spurs fans since returning from a loan at Udinese and has already played for Italy's youth national teams.
Although still eligible for Nigeria, Antonelli stated that Udogie identifies as Italian and plans to continue his international career with Italy, even as he remains on the watchlist for Italy's upcoming 2024 European Championship qualifiers.
Udogie recently pulled out of Italy's U21 squad due to illness.
