New Sensation Brian Idowu Faces Sanction For Eagles Appearance

first_imgNew Super Eagles sensation Brian Idowu could be sanctioned after he opted to represent Nigeria.The Amkar Perm of Russia defender made his Eagles debut as an halftime substitute during Tuesday’s 4-2 win over Argentina and scored the third goal in an impressive comeback win for the team however the 25-year old could now lose his nationality status as a Russian because of that.Russia don’t support dual nationality for citizens meaning that he will have to sacrifice his Russian citizenship if he plays for the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a competitive game.Idowu, who has been vocal about playing for Nigeria at the World Cup, will first renounce his Russian citizenship before obtaining a Nigerian passport and that means he would lose all the benefits he enjoys as a Russian at his club.According to football rules in Russia, a maximum of six foreign players can only be fielded by a club at once in a league game.If Brian Idowu turns out for Nigeria competitively, his Amkar Perm club will be at a disadvantage due to the fact that they will lose a Russian citizen.
