Abraham happy Nigeria and England are fighting for him

England youth international Tammy Abraham seems to be in a state of confusion as regards the country he should represent amidst strong interest form Nigeria, his country of origin.

A meeting with the NFF president Amaju Pinnick could not convince the striker to make a switch of nationality to Nigeria as he turned down allegations that he had agreed the switch immediately they were in the news.

Abraham could have considered of a rethink following Nigeria’s impressive feat of being the first African country to qualify for the World Cup and the fact that Alex Iwobi, former England youth international, gained so much recognition worldwide for his goal which confirmed Nigeria’s place in the Mundial.

Speaking to online publication, Mirror, Abraham hinted Nigeria could still snatch him up from England’s claws:

“There are a lot of things going on. For me that is a sign you are doing something right, if Nigeria are fighting for you and England want you as well.

“I’m happy right now and just want to keep playing my football. Nothing has happened. I’m not too sure what is going on” he stated.

Abraham is presently with England U-21 preparing to take on Andora in the ongoing Euro 21 qualifier.
