England, Denmark battle For Nigeria-born Arsenal Whizkid Chidozie Obi-Martin


Arsenal whizkid Chidozie Obi-Martin is at the centre of an international battle.

The 15-year-old Nigeria-born was selected for the Denmark U16 squad on 7 February, and on 18 February he was selected for the England U16 national team.

The talent manager at DBU, Kenneth Heiner-Møller, told TV 2 SPORT, “It is related that we selected our squad before England did, and subsequently the English Football Association approached us in relation to Obi.”

For now the 15-year-old Arsenal player has chosen England over Denmark.

Heiner-Møller has stated they are open to accepting the Arsenal player should he change his mind in the future.
