During the last international break, he scored twice in a 7-1 rout of Luxembourg which keeps their hope of making it to the U21 Euros alive. Madueke has established himself as the star of the team but John says he sees his future with the senior national team of Nigeria.

” I really think he won’t get into the England setup anytime soon and that will accelerate his decision making if the option of playing for Nigeria is still on the table. He is still only 22 but he is very ambitious. I don’t see him waiting for long before taking the next option for his international career. I personally see him playing for Nigeria in the immediate than England and I believe he knows that as well”, he rounded up saying.
