Hoogewerf has been capped at U15 and U16 level by the Netherlands, scoring an impressive 8 goals in 13 appearances. All the thirteen matches he played for the Netherlands youth teams were friendlies, meaning he can play for Nigeria without applying for a change of association just as William Troost-Ekong did before his debut for the Super Eagles.
