Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick has revealed plans to convince Chelsea forward, Tammy Abraham to play for the Super Eagles. Pinnick made this known on Tuesday.
Pinnick made this known on Tuesday, where he stated that Abraham could pick up from where retired Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo stopped with the senior national team.
Recall that the football body have made efforts to lure the former England U-21 star to represent Nigeria prior to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
He said: ‘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 has made a strong start to the season for Chelsea with four goals in six games after being given his chance in the first team by new boss Frank Lampard.
The striker has also earned 25 caps for England Under-21s, scoring nine goals, but is no longer eligible due to his age.
