England Under-21 striker, Tammy Abraham, has told the English FA he remains available for selection for the Three Lions and has rejected reports he wants to switch his international allegiance to Nigeria.
Abraham, who has also represented England at Under-18 and Under-19 level, was born in London but is also eligible to play for the Super Eagles through his father
The Chelsea striker – currently on loan at Swansea – admitted meeting the President of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, after the Swans’ 0-0 draw with Tottenham at Wembley last weekend.
But yesterday, Abraham released a statement confirming he remains committed to England.
“Contrary to reports in the media today (Thursday) I would like to clarify that I have not agreed to switch my national team allegiance,” said Abraham.
“I can confirm I met the President of the NFF after our last game against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday given he is a friend of my father.
