Bournemouth midfielder Philip Billing has revealed that Everton winger Alex Iwobi discussed the possibility of representing Nigeria at international level with him.

Billing is eligible to play for Nigeria through his father.

The 23-year-old is in line to make his international debut for Denmark at senior level in Saturday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Switzerland, having represented the country of his birth at various youth levels.

Billing admitted that he had been flattered by interest in him.

“It wasn’t until when we (Cherries) were going to play against Everton a couple of weeks ago when Alex Iwobi asked if I might be interested in coming and playing for Nigeria,” Billing told Danish newspaper B.T.

“It’s a pat on the back that another country would like you to play for them. I just take that as a shrug and proof that you are doing well.”

He however stated the chances of turning out for Nigeria had always been slim.

“I am half Nigerian and I feel that way too but I was born and raised in Denmark. My mother is Danish and my sister is Danish, so it would feel strange to have to play for Nigeria.”
