Tammy Abraham Says He Would Join Nigeria’s National Team On This Condition
The striker qualifies to play for both nations through his Nigerian father, who is a close personal friend of the Super Eagles’ Federation President Amaju Pinnick, The Sun UK reports.
However he hasn’t featured in the 22 months since and was overlooked again by Gareth Southgate for last week’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo.
He is well aware of the Super Eagles renewed interest in him and, after scoring a stunning hat-trick against Wolves, refused to rule out making a shock switch.
“I have heard the talk. When the time comes, the time comes”
Asked if he still had to make a major decision on his international future, Tammy Abraham replied:
“I have not really focused on that yet. I’m focusing on Chelsea and hopefully scoring goals and getting victories. We never know. You can never say never … whatever comes first really.”
