By James Agberebi:
Chelsea on loan striker Tammy Abraham has been called up to the English senior national team ahead of their international friendlies against Brazil and Germany this month, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

His invitation was confirmed on the Three Lions’ verified Twitter handle on Thursday.

The 20-year-old had been involved in a battle between Nigeria and England concerning where his international allegiance lies.

  • How does that reduce the high cost of Garri in Osogbo……..???
    If he like he can even go as far as changing his name, 9ja flag is already in Russia flying.
    Agbolohor is a very good example for him.

  • England can only use him for one or two match and dump him

  • I feel sorry for him. Thanks beginning of the end of him international career

  • Thank God
    After rejecting Nigeria, I dont wanna c him in dah green and white, he should just go please

  • Somebody needs to really advise this guy before he makes a big mistake. Look at the English national team set up. Aside their U-17, U-19 and U-20. you will never see more than 1 or 2 (at most 3) black players on the pitch with an English senior national team, unlike France or Belgium. You know why Nigeria don’t really care about John Fahanu, in spite of all his noise about one footbal academy or youth competition or the other? What about Gabriel Agbolanhor & co. But people like Reuben Agboola will always be welcome as a hero anytime in Nigeria. Tammy, after a few friendly matches, you may never play with England at the world cup. Big eye. Nigeria is small, abi?

      just spot on with your comment.,Tammy may never see a full be a regular starter for the English national side after being capped, it’s not the first time it’s happening, they’re only playing smart to keep him eligible for the team, as soon as they see a white skin he will be dropped without a second thought, he better reconsider, but as for me after Abraham denied us in public, I don’t want him on the Nigerian national team.

  • I wish you all the very best. At least dele alli plays for England. Everyone won’t be used and dumped. England trained him, made him. Its his choice.

  • He is finish d moment he put on d england senior team jersey,that will be d first and last match he will play for them,ask Gabriel agbonlahor

  • they will always us him for friendly matches

  • VOOM KA MMA KARIA STATEMENT the guy man no say him no fit do the work

  • Super eagles is bigger than him Tammy Abraham so let him go

  • He’ll definitely get call ups for friendlies, no doubt. They may even raise his hopes further by giving him a cameo in a competitive engagement to cement his nationality but like John Fashanu and Ugo Ehiogu, he’ll NEVER be considered for tournaments!
    Agreed, he’s a decent striker with huge prospects but it will take the superstar abilities of Dele Alli for a player with African roots to succeed with the Three Lions.

  • He should pray they don’t cap him and drop him

  • Tammy is just like any other players,nothing special.
    We have more than enough.

    Lets be cautious in our condemnation of the young man. From what I see, he wants to play for Nigeria but Swansea’s coach threatened him that he would be dropped from their first squad. And since he rescinded his decision, have you now seen how he plays regularly for Swansea? If he had disobeyed his coach he would have landed himself in hit soup. His parents want him to play for Nigeria too but the young man is under immense pressure. Let us wish him well an pray that he wont regret his decision to play for England. I personally wouldnt want to see him dumped if he chooses England bcos I think he has been threatened and cant help himself much. Wishing him goodluck.

    • Achi 1 year ago

      Wrong logic. Is Swansea the only team? He will end up being used for a FEW friendly games only … and dumped. Mark my words. But we wish him well.

  • Many players did it.They were used only for friendly matches and later dumped. Even Ogbonna was used by Italian national team in a friendly against Nigeria but what happened at the end.Ogbonna was later dumped. He is playing in English premier league. Many players who were later dumped regretted it.You are making the same mistake and you will regret it in future.

  • Where is Gabriel Ogbolaho after being used for friendly ; that was the end. So will it be.

  • I have watch this guy play average player we should be focus on developing the young player we have already .. if he like he can play for pakistan or India I don’t care

  • Let him be we have qualities every where jo

  • He that runs faster than his kings men always mets spirit

  • What a shame! He will only end up playing friendly matches.

  • He will soon regret it. After the friendly, he will drop and dump

  • Thank God! That will teach nigeria to search for home lads that are much more better than him

  • Mtsw…. Let him go we don’t care weather he want or nt Nigerian flag was start waving at Russia

  • What about dele alli, our nfa should talk to these guys, we need a player like dele please

  • How can u bench harry kane? Use ur brain boy

  • Nigeria should go and develop their own talent we have lots of talent here in Nigeria,south Africa re now developing her own talent in 15 yrs to come south Africa will b force to recon with in African football both youth and senior level u guys should watch out

  • Victor Onyeanum 1 year ago

    Which home-based players are “much more better than him”? Tell us their names and where they are. However, let him go. Nigeria will never miss him.

  • Achi 1 year ago

    We’ve definitely over flogged this issue regarding Tammy’s choice. It is becoming repulsive. The young man has opted to play for England. Most Nigerians respect his opinion and have given him their blessings. Why resurrect the issue and examine it from every angle ad nauseam? He is a fledgling at the commencement of his career, not even fully mature cognitively. Let’s allow him to grow. Will all this noise about his choice enable him to grow into a superstar? No. Whatever choice he makes has its ups and downs. There is no perfect choice. Look at Anthony Joshua, the current world heavy weight champion. Is he not from Sagamu, but now a Briton? Are Nigerians not celebrating his achievements? The truth is that Nigeria will not be able to mobilize all her talented young footballers into the Super Eagles. They abound in every nook and corner of the world.

    Let’s give this matter a rest and focus on our preparation for the World Cup.

      Spot on sir. Well said. If Nigeria really has football in mind, let them tread the path of South Africa…develop the ‘local’ talents. Tammy, all d best may you soar on eagles wings jare. Like say if the were in your shoe they won’t do likewise.. #fakepatriotism

  • christoph 1 year ago

    i really wonder why Nigerians are so worried about Tammy Abraham ,
    victor osimhen is as good as that guy if givin the right environment ,
    paul Onuachu is better than him , bigger , taller ans stronger
    even Henry Onyekuru is miles ahead of him in goal scoring , speed ,decision making and all that look at cyrill dersser who is even almost practically begging to play for is far better than him we also a Brazilian born Dominic eberechukwu out there who wants to play for us without being begged .
    so its better we let him be .

  • dejikokun 1 year ago

    Tammy wld live to regret this decision if he ever tries it. Where is Walcott, chamberlain, struggide today?out of England squad, these are golden stars of England of ystr ooo. Any blip in form, this tammy would never smell a call up again. Besides he wont even hold a regular shirt in England squad (who is he going to bench? Deli, Kane or Rashford? FA is setting a huge trap for this boy. He should go and ask Fashanu
    Agbolahan and others, i pity him. I am not even a fan of him and i dont see any big deal in him playing for Nigeria

  • They just use that call up to tie him down. He won’t go to world cup. They did that for Agbolahor too

  • Any good news about our brother moses hope he is getting well?? Cos we need him badly both in super eagle and Chelsea not tammy boy

  • After dis call up till 2019 world cup him no go ever c shirt. Alli is dieing him go join again gray will soon pick fork

  • The “Dog that speeds ,leaving the Master behind will never have the Keys nor open the Gate ”
    African proverbs and word of wisdom to Tammy.

  • He can only be used and dumped by England, nothing more
