Hamrun Spartans star striker, Franklin Sasere has said he is determined to play for Nigeria at senior level despite interest from the Maltese national team.
The 23-year-old has enjoyed a fine season at Victor Tedesco Stadium.
This has led to him being eyed by the two countries to represent them in international football.
A potential Super Eagles call-up has been mooted, although Gernot Rohr’s squad is well stocked in that area.
Despite this, Sasere insists he still wants to play for the country of his birth.
“My childhood dream is to wear Nigeria’s green and white and that has not changed.
“I want to use this medium to state that I have not pledged my international allegiance to Malta or any other country. I will keep working hard until I get called up by the Super Eagles national team selectors,” Sasere told Goal.
