For a third time, Nigeria is going to lose another football prodigy who would have helped in shooting the national team for international glory.

The Arsenal prodigy, Bukayo Saka is likely to feature for Three Lions debut in October, thus dashing hope for a Super Eagles career.

Saka, the Arsenal youngster tentatively is billed to feature for England in their UEFA Nations League game on October 11 against Belgium at Wembley or Denmark at the same venue three days.

Many Nigerians are rankled about the loss of the most-talented Premier League youngster who could have represented the three-time African champions.

The loss of Chelsea pair, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, last year was felt initially, but the general feeling afterwards indicated that supporters of the West African nation had moved on in a trice.
