Nigeria on a charm offensive for red hot Tammy Abraham

Nigeria on a charm offensive for red hot Tammy Abraham

Nigeria are on a charm offensive mission and they have clearly told Tammy Abraham that they want him to switch his allegiance from England and be a Super Eagle.

.The striker has spent the last five years progressing through the Three Lions set-up making two appearances he earned with the senior side.

However, with each of those outings coming in friendly internationals, the 21-year-old is still able to change his allegiance and play for another nation.

.Nigeria Football Federation President Melvin Amaju Pinnick has personally led the venture to get the striker

Pinnick is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “We will not relent in our quest for good players to play for the country and win laurels. We will keep talking to good players of Nigeria descent to play for their fatherland.

“But like you know, these kids are very independent minded. In fact, we have been told to wait until April 2020, when he hopes to make a final decision on the matter.

“I told him that he stood a better chance of playing regularly for Nigeria than with England, which has a galaxy of strikers of the English stock.”

Abraham, who has netted four Premier League goals this season, has previously insisted that he remains committed to playing for England throughout his career.
