Tammy Abraham knows what to do if he want to play for Nigeria – Rohr


Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has suggested that he won’t be making any fresh approach to convince red hot Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham to commit his international future to Nigeria.

Tammy has already represented England at senior level following his rise through their youth ranks but still remains eligible to represent Nigeria with his fine start to the season prompting calls for Nigeria to push for him once again.

He was announced to have switched allegiance to Nigeria 18 months ago but he swiftly denied the story which was posted on the official website of the Nigeria Football Federation ( NFF) and shortly after made his debut for the senior national team of England.

Rohr  said the Chelsea forward is in the know on what to do if he want to play for the senior national team of Nigeria as they have already sold their plans to him before his current run of goals for Chelsea.

” I think we have done on our part on Tammy now it’s up to him because he knows what to do if he want to play for Nigeria. Like I said we are focused on the best players only for Nigeria and if he makes himself one then we are open to having him”, Rohr said.

The Franco-German coach was however silent on Tammy’s teammate Fikayo Tomori who has also excelled in the past few games in central defence and also scored a spectacular goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers two weeks ago.

” The idea is to call the best players available for selection so there’s a chance we call players who want to play for us without making a public show off it. We are happy for any Nigerian player doing well”.
