Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has talked about his decision to choose the Three Lions of England ahead of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The 21-year-old spoke about his international allegiance to England ahead of Nigeria in a chat with ACL Sports.
Tammy Abraham was on course to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria after the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick had a discussion with him in his capacity as the number one football administrator in Nigeria and a friend of his father.
In the end, the talk with Amaju Pinnick has no effect as Tammy Abraham opted for England ahead of Nigeria.
He went on to play in club friendlies against Germany and Brazil for the England national team but the Chelsea striker is yet to receive any other invitation for almost two years.
The England u-21 international played for the senior team during friendly games meaning that he’s still eligible to play for other countries including Nigeria.
On the prospect of playing for Nigeria, Tammy Abraham told ACL Sports that it’s possible and that anything is possible.
He returned to Chelsea this summer from a successful loan spell at newly promoted team Aston Villa and the former Swansea City and Bristol City star has played in all three of the games played by Chelsea till date.
