EURO 2024: 19-goal Premier League striker becomes latest Super Eagles-eligible star dumped by European country


Just like Michael Olise and Karim Adeyemi, the Premier League star has also been forced to think about a future with Nigeria's Super Eagles.

Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke has become the latest in a string of Nigeria-eligible stars to be left out of their country's main squad for the upcoming UEFA European Football Championship in Germany.

Solanke has been left out of the England squad

Despite becoming Bournemouth's all-time top scorer in a single Premier League season with 19 goals during the 2023/24 season, Solanke was left out of England's European Championship squad, failing to even make the preliminary squad.

Instead, Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins and Brentford star Ivan Toney have been named as partners or representatives for Three Lions captain Harry Kane.

In addition to Solanke, another Nigeria-eligible star, Tosin Adarabioyo, has also been left out of the England squad.

Borussia Dortmund star Karim Adeyemi was also left out of the Germany squad, while Crystal Palace star Michael Olise was not considered good enough for France's initial squad despite impressing in the English Premier League.

The lack of recognition by other countries has opened doors for these players to consider changing international allegiance, where they can all make a good career with the Nigerian Super Eagles.
