Tammy Abraham Hints At Switching Allegiance To Nigeria by Updatebaze(m): 11:46am On Sep 16
In-form Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has given Super Eagles a major boost by refusing to rule out switching his allegiance to Nigeria.

The 21-year-old who was born in the UK to Nigerian parents is currently the joint-leading scorer with Sergio Aguero in the Premier League, So far, the pair have seven goals each.

Despite representing England at Under 18, Under 19 and Under 21 levels Tammy is still eligible to play for the three-time African champions, through his Nigerian parents.

Speaking on the situation, Abraham told Goal: ‘Yes, I have heard the talk. I have not really been focused on that yet.

‘I think when the time comes, the times comes. It is about focusing on Chelsea and hopefully scoring goals and getting victories.

‘We never know. You can never say never, whatever comes first really. I just have to keep full focus on Chelsea.

NFF pursuing this guy because he plays for Chelsea. Because of his experience? Oh experience indeed. We don't have sense in this country, I swear. angry He'll be a fool to choose a shiiithole country like Nigeria over England.

He should not even think it twice. Upon all his victories in the UK he still faces racism. He should come and play for his mother land where he can feel belonged

It is not rocket science.

His first priority now will be to use his current form for Chelsea FC to boost his worth as a striker.

His second priority will be to study the current Three Lions to see if he has a chance of displacing any of Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford for first team place. Given the age and experience of these players, it might be difficult to break in. And once he shows up for England, then he has sealed international football fate.

His third priority will be to play for Nigeria where he is most likely to give Victor Osinhem, Paul Onuachu and Henry Onyekuru a run for their money.

However, the truth is that where he decides to pitch his international tent is completely his headache. With or without Tammy Abraham, Super Eagles will continue to fly high.

If he prefers to play for England, I wish him good luck. Cos we don't really need him here. But if he get sense, he can come. Though, I think he made that statement to make England call him quick.
