Nigeria have moved on, since Swansea City striker, Tammy Abraham, opted to represent England.
President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, spoke of a “positive” meeting in London with Abraham, whose father is a Nigerian, and his agent on a possible switch of his international allegiance, after playing for England at age-grade levels.
However, just hours after that announcement, Abraham himself put out a statement, saying he will consider a future with England instead.
Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has now said he is not bothered that the England U-21 striker will not consider a future with Nigeria.
“Rohr is not losing sleep over Tammy Abraham’s decision to play for England instead of Nigeria.
“Things might change in the future, but the man is not worried over Tammy’s decision and won’t be losing sleep over him.
“The coach is focused on looking for players who are ready to play for Nigeria out of their own volition.
“He said he is looking for players who are ready to give him 200 percent when they play for the national team,” Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, said.Log in or Register to save this content for later.
