Arsenal legend Kanu Nwankwo has reacted to the news that the Chelsea duo of Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori have been called up to the England senior national team setup ahead of the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Super Eagles legend and other fans had hoped that the two Nigerian-born players will agree to feature for the team ahead of England.

Former Arsenal and Super Eagles forward Kanu Nwankwo spoke about the two Chelsea players in an exclusive interview with Goal.

Kanu Nwankwo is fine with the decision of the two Circles players before adding that the Super Eagles of Nigeria is bigger than any player.

Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori were included in the 25-man England squad named by manager Gareth Southgate on Thursday for the Euro 2020 qualifying matches against Bulgaria and Czech Republic.

The two Chelsea players have been in very good form for the West London club this season.

Tammy Abraham returned to Chelsea from a successful loan spell at newly promoted Premier League side Aston Villa this summer and he has scored eight goals in all competitions including seven goals in as many Premier League games.

According to manager Frank Lampard, Fikayo Tomori is the first choice centre back in his team.
