Tammy Abraham Thrilled With England Call-up

By Adeboye Amosu: Tammy Abraham is delighted following his maiden call-up to the English senior national team for the international friendlies against Brazil and Germany,” reports Completesportsnigeria. com.

The 20-year-old who is on loan at Swansea from English Premier League champions Chelsea had been torn between representing England or Nigeria, even though he has represented the former at the youth levels.

But his latest invitation by the Three Lions manager ,Gareth Southgate may have put an end to speculations over his international future.

“Words can’t describe the feeling, but truly blessed and honoured to be called up to @ English seniors. Thanks for all the messages,” Abraham wrote on his Twitter minutes after the squad list was announced.

Southgate also handed another Chelsea loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek his first invitation, along with Liverpool’s Joe Gomez.

Abraham has had a hand in five of Swansea’s seven league goals this season (4 goals, 1 assist), the highest ratio in the Premier League.

He has represented England at U-18, U-19 and U-21 levels.

    Clearly if Nigeria had not asked him, the English would not have called him up. But it’s good for his career, and he’s young. So, let’s hope he ceases the opportunity and makes something out of it

    This guy has destroyed his international future by opting to play for England. They will feature once as a substitute and dump him for good. Whereas with Nigeria he would have been worshipped lije Iwobi and Victor Moses.

    Tammy Abraham’s decision to represent the 3 Lions of England should be respected. His decision might have been influenced however we should wish him good luck rather than condemn him because we are not privy to any of the circumstances that led to him choosing England ahead of Nigeria.

    I think rather than brood and wail over his imminent loss to England we should be grateful to have the likes of Iwobi, Ola Aina, Tyrone Ebuehi, Leon Balogun, Troost Ekong and many more are on their way to lace for Nigeria. As a matter of fact, there are so many young quality forwards out there in Europe that are deserving a look in: Paul Onuachu, Umar Sadiq, Chuba Akpom, Henry Onyekuru.

    Also, I am of the opinion that the NFF and coaching crew should rather beam their searchlight on Joshua Onamah of Tottenham Spurs on loan with Aston villa, a defensive midfielder, Ejaria Ovie, a central midfielder with Liverpool and Fikayo Tomori and perhaps Felix Uduokhai, a defender with Wolfsburg, Germany and look for ways to secure their eligibility for Nigeria. These young men are amazing and exciting with great years ahead of them if we catch them young.

  • That will be the end

    It’s obvious England called him because Nigeria was seriously courting him. With the quality of the attacking options they’ve got, they don’t really need Tammy. All they did was to keep us away from him. Whether this is good for him let not is a function of time. We can only wish him well and respect his choice. A lesson for Mr. Pinnick: You don’t rush to the press alerting England of your interest in a player they also desire. Even if he had agreed to play for us, everything should have been kept under wraps until it gets to point where Tammy would find it difficult to make u-turning. Rushing to the press, when no one had even applied to FIFA for change of allegiance is totally uncalled for and immature. Hope they’ve learnt their lesson

  • Sure,they will never learn,he should ask Gabriel agbonlahor and the rest of them.

    Spot on @Papafem pinnick show off was way too childish and unprofessional. Anyway we wish Tammy well for his continous open disrespect to Nigeria is Fatherland. The English FA are just been political just to the detriment of Nigeria in trueness they’ll never take this boy to Russia ahead of Kane,Vardy,Rashford or even defoe and old Rooney… I shake my head young lad with young sense ask Chuba Akpom

    Truth is: I’ve not been comfortable with Pinnick’s way of doing things. The guy looks so clumsy and unorganized. He’s a typical Nigerian politician who shows off with every little achievement he pulls off. Agreed, he’s hardworking and very passionate about the game as it relates to Nigeria. But sometimes, you can be busy and doing nothing or doing something with little to show for it. His hasty appointment of Olishe, how he allowed Super Falcons’ bonus issue to degenerate to public ignominy, and this Tammy issue show he has a lot of growing up to do. His only gamble that paid off do far was the appointment of Genot Rohr. I may be wrong anyways but Let’s see how he handles the world cup bonus issue.
