Again, Abraham opens door for Nigeria ahead of England
Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham has left the door open to representing Nigeria in future, despite strong overtures from England.
Abraham, 21, was born in London but he qualifies for the Super Eagles through paternal lineage.
The Premier League’s joint-top scorer left the door open to Nigeria after he stole headlines with a hat-trick in a 5-2 win away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.
“Yes, I have heard the talk. I have not really been focused on that yet,” Abraham said at Molineux Stadium.
“I think when the time comes, the times comes. It is about focusing on Chelsea and hopefully scoring goals and getting victories.
“We never know. You can never say never, whatever comes first really. I just have to keep full focus on Chelsea. It has been a good day at the office for the boys and me. Coming here is never easy. We played well, thankfully, I scored three and we got the three points.”
Chelsea’s 11 league goals have all come from homegrown players like Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori also got on the scoresheet in the midlands.
