Joshua Zirkzee of Bologna reveals sole condition for representing Nigeria

Posted : 29 February 2024

Bologna striker Joshua Orobosa Zirkzee has outlined the singular condition that would lead him to choose to represent the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Zirkzee, 22, gained prominence in the German Bundesliga during the 2019/2020 season with Bayern Munich, achieving a treble under the management of Hansi Flick. After subsequent loan spells at Parma and Anderlecht, he joined Bologna permanently in the summer of 2022.

Impressive performances this season have sparked discussions about his potential inclusion in Ronald Koeman's squad for the Euro 2024 tournament in Germany. Having excelled for Bologna, scoring nine goals and providing four assists, Zirkzee's form has captured attention.

Born on May 22, 2001, Zirkzee has a Nigerian mother and a Dutch father. Despite representing the Netherlands from U-15 to U-21 levels, he is yet to feature for the senior team. Expressing a preference for the Dutch national team, he dreams of participating in Euro 2024 with Ronald Koeman's squad in Germany, the country where he first gained recognition before moving abroad.

Zirkzee acknowledged the possibility of changing nationality but emphasized the challenge due to Nigeria's impressive striker lineup, including Victor Osimhen and Victor Boniface.

Bologna currently sits in 4th place in the Serie A table, two points ahead of Ademola Lookman's Atalanta in 5th place, with both teams vying for a spot in the next season's UEFA Champions League.
