"Playing for Nigeria is incredible," says Lookman, history-maker

Posted : 23 May 2024

Ademola Lookman showcased the peak of his abilities, leading Atalanta to their inaugural European triumph with a 3-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League final, held at the Dublin Arena.

Bayer Leverkusen's remarkable unbeaten streak came to an end at 52 games, marking a significant setback despite their potential for securing the domestic double under Xabi Alonso's management.

Lookman's heroics secured Atalanta's first major trophy, with his decisive goals in the 12th, 26th, and 75th minutes sealing the victory and etching his name in history as the first player to net a hat-trick in a Europa League final.

Formerly a part of England's youth setup, Lookman's switch to represent Nigeria has proven fruitful, with his standout performances contributing to the Super Eagles' success, notably in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Reflecting on his choice to play for Nigeria, Lookman expressed immense pride and gratitude for the support he receives from the Nigerian people, highlighting the motivation it provides for personal growth both on and off the pitch.

Since committing to Nigeria, Lookman has been a consistent presence in the Super Eagles lineup, amassing 21 appearances for the national team since his debut in 2022, showcasing his dedication to representing his ancestral homeland.
