Super Eagles forward Ademola Lookman has revealed that the best moment of his career was when he got his first call-up to the National team.

Lookman was born in England, and he started his international career with English Youth teams until last year when he decided to switch allegiances to three-time African champions Nigeria.

However, he had to wait till earlier this year before FIFA cleared him to play for the Super Eagles.

On the club stage, the 24-year-old has garnered a lot of game time, featuring for Charlton, Everton, RB Leipzig, Fulham, and Leicester City and bagging 29 goals.

However, despite playing for England and those clubs, Lookman insists that the best moment of his career was when he got his first Super Eagles call-up.

“The most memorable moment of my career was getting called up to the Super Eagles. It’s a big highlight. Lookman told NFF TV.

Lookman has featured four times for the Super Eagles this year, and he has one goal and an assist to his name
