Angelo Ogbonna – Italy vs Nigeria

The defender was born in Cassino, Italy, to Nigerian parents and could therefore choose whether to play international football for either the Azzurri or the Super Eagles. He chose to defend goal for the country of his birth, and Nigeria lost out on a very talented 28-year-old with a bright future ahead of him. He has a chance of featuring in the final Italian squad for Euro 2016.
