Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that he won’t influence the decision of his players Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori on who to play for in the international stage.

Frank Lampard revealed that he won’t influence the two players choosing Nigeria over England or vice versa.

Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori have made a great start to the season and its not out of place that their international allegiance is up for discussion.

The two players have played for the various youth teams of England and are also eligible to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Tammy Abraham has played for the England senior team on two occasions but he’s yet to feature in a competitive game thus opening him up for the possibility of switching international allegiance just like what Crystal Palace winger Wilfred Zaha did by switching from England to Ivory Coast.

Frank Lampard was asked about the international careers of Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Lille game on Wednesday night.

Tammy Abraham has scored seven goals for Chelsea this season with all his goals coming in the Premier League.

The former Aston Villa and Bristol City striker is yet to open his account in the Champions League.
