British media: Tammy Abraham prefers England to Nigeria

Tammy Abraham is ready to accept an England call-up if Gareth Southgate picks the striker in his squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria – a move that could seal Abraham’s international future, dashing Nigeria’s hopes of poaching him according to a report in The Telegraph.

Southgate names his squad for England’s double-header on Thursday with Abraham waiting to see whether or not his good form for Chelsea will be enough to earn him a place in the squad.

Nigeria have been attempting to convince Abraham to switch his international allegiance, despite the fact the 21-year-old has already won two senior England caps in friendlies against Germany and Brazil.

Abraham has not publicly committed himself to either county, but it is understood he wants to play for England and would accept a call from Southgate if it came.

He qualifies for Nigeria through his father, who is close childhood friends with the president of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju  Pinnick.

Were Abraham to make any sort of appearance for England against Czech Republic or Bulgaria, then he would be committed to the Three Lions for the rest of his life because the two games are European Championship qualifiers.

Abraham has netted seven goals in the Premier League this season, only one less than Sergio Aguero, which makes him the highest-scoring Englishman in the top flight.

Southgate revealed that Abraham was very much on his radar during the last international break in which he selected Kane, Marcus Rashford and Callum Wilson as his out-and-out strikers.
