He has played for the Netherlands U21s with whom he has made 19 appearances, registering seven goals and three assists.

Speaking to Algemeen Dagblad via soccernews, Zirkzee said: “But Nigeria is not a country that you just choose because you cannot play for your homeland. The competition there for attackers is perhaps just as great as in the Dutch team.

“Nigeria has Boniface from Leverkusen and Osimhen from Napoli. And they have many more attackers.

“It’s not like I can think for a moment: The Netherlands is not calling, then I will choose Nigeria. Are they even pulling on me? Maybe.

“I’d be grateful if it did happen. If not, I have to make sure they call me. You hope to be there one day.”
