In a recent interview, he explained the meaning of his name:
“My name is Nigerian and it means, ‘God has filled me with joy, it is typical in Nigeria to give such names,”
“I feel very Nigerian, when I was little my parents spoke to me in the local language and I ate typical Nigerian food.”
If Fikayo decides to make a move to the Super Eagles, it may elevate the level of the team that is aiming to qualify to 2022 World Cup.
