AdemetanAbayomi 1d

In football, there some players who play for one country. Others decide to dump such country for different reasons. There are those who do such because of money hunting.

However, it is not always that all of those players who decided to dump Nigeria will be successful in their destinations.

Born to a German mother and Nigerian father, Sam would have been eligible to play for the Nigeria national team, but decided early on to represent his country of birth. Sam was a German youth national player, starring in Germany's under-19 and under-20 teams. On 29 May 2013, Sam made his senior international debut for Germany in a friendly game against Ecuador in Boca Raton, Florida. On 8 May 2014, Sam was named to the 30-man provisional squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup by German national team manager, Joachim Löw.
