Abraham Reveals Possibility Of Playing For Nigeria

Chelsea forward, Tammy Abraham has refused to rule out the possibility of switching his international allegiance to three-time African champions Nigeria. 

The Nigeria Football Federation were keen on recruiting Abraham before the 2018 World Cup and President Amaju Pinnick thought he had convinced the Chelsea striker after visiting him in London, only for the player to deny the reports.

Abraham has made two appearances for the Three Lions in friendly matches but the caps earned against Brazil and Germany do not tie him down to England for the rest of his career.

The 21-year-old has not been invited to the senior national team of England for close to two years but remains a key member of the U21 team.

Speaking to ACL Sports on the possibility of representing Nigeria, Abraham said : ”Anything is still possible. I have not ruled it out completely but we will see”.

London-born Abraham has scored 16 goals in 45 appearances for England youth teams and represented the country in the 2019 U21 EURO.
