Chelsea Youngster Denies Plan To Play For Nigeria
News spreading like wide fire that Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham has made up his mind to dump England and play for Nigeria has been denied by the 19-year old.
The NFF President Amaju Pinnick had boasted of fruitful talks with Tammy who is presently playing on loan at Swansea City and he was exuding confidence that the player is ready to switch his allegiance to play for Nigeria.
“Most recently, there was a meeting with Tammy, which Tammy’s agent, Neil Fewills also attended. It was a useful meeting, and I can say the talks are at an appreciable level now and all is looking good.
“Tammy is like a son to me, because his father was my childhood friend. I believe he is a good prospect for the Super Eagles and the effort is well worth it.” Pinnick had told thenff.com
However, Sky Sports on Thursday reported that Tammy has told the English FA to discard the reports that he is willing to play for Nigeria; adding that he is ever available for selection by England.
Born 2nd October 1997, Tammy is 1.90m tall, and is said to have immense respect for fellow Chelsea FC man Victor Moses, who also played for England at junior level before committing his senior international career to Nigeria.
