Crystal Palace star Michael Olise remains eligible to represent Nigeria at the international level following his exclusion from France’s squad for the 2024 European Championships.


Despite an impressive season with Palace, Didier Deschamps left Olise out of the French squad. The 24-year-old winger scored 10 goals and provided five assists in just 18 games, showcasing his exceptional talent and consistency. However, this was not enough to secure him a spot in the Euros lineup.

Why Olise's International Eligibility Matters

Olise’s versatility and attacking prowess make him a valuable asset for any national team. His eligibility for multiple countries keeps fans and football associations eager to see where he will ultimately pledge his allegiance.
