World football governing body FIFA has cleared eight players for the Super Eagles of Nigeria. These players have at some point in their careers featured their various countries of birth. But they are now cleared to represent Nigeria.

These players are cleared under the FIFA rule that states that a player can switch to their original nationality if they failed to represent their second nation – which has become more prevalent in the modern era with dual nationality.

Several Players have played for their country of birth at the youth level before switching allegiance to the country of their, parents or grandparents while some became eligible after becoming citizens through naturalization.

The Player recently cleared to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria Are:
