Super Eagles eligible forward Joshua Zirkzee gets called up by Ronald Koeman for the Netherlands national side.

Joshua Zirkzee, the 22-year-old striking sensation tearing it up in Italy with Bologna, is in the international spotlight, juggling the choice between playing for the Netherlands or Nigeria.

The football world is abuzz, especially now that Dutch manager Ronald Koeman has tossed Zirkzee’s name into the mix for the Netherlands’ upcoming matches.

Koeman’s Keen Eye For Zirkzee

The Oranje’s provisional squad list just got a jolt of excitement with the addition of Zirkzee. This isn’t just any call-up; it’s a strategic play by Koeman, especially given Zirkzee’s recent musings over his national team’s future.

Having voiced his dilemma about choosing between the Super Eagles and the Dutch, this inclusion could be a game-changer.

Zirkzee’s Crossroads

The Bologna forward’s national team allegiance has been a hot topic.

“Choosing Nigeria? It’s not easy to say. If the Netherlands aren’t calling, then I’ll choose Nigeria,” Zirkzee remarked, acknowledging the fierce competition in both squads.

While his heart seems set on the Dutch team, he’s keeping his options open, ready to embrace Nigeria if the call from the Netherlands falls through.

With Koeman now signalling a clear interest, Zirkzee’s international career could be set to soar with the Dutch, particularly as he’s been on fire in Serie A, netting 10 goals and contributing 6 assists.

As the Netherlands gears up to clash with Scotland and Germany, all eyes will be on whether Zirkzee will don the iconic orange jersey or hold out for a future with Nigeria.
