Hope rises as Tammy Abraham may pick Nigeria over England

16th Sept, 2019 | By Our Reporter | ||

Chelsea hotshot will soon announce whether he will play for the Super Eagles or the Three Lions of England. This indication was given by president, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick last week, according to a report by leading online football news medium, owngoalnigeria.com.

Abraham was once announced to have switched allegiance to Nigeria but the England youth international quickly distanced himself from the report, which was on the website of the NFF, by releasing a statement where he reaffirmed his commitment to England.

Although he has since represented England in two games, he is still eligible to play for Nigeria--- something he confirmed by saying he is open to the idea of representing Nigeria--- insisting he hasn't close the door yet. The decision of England coach Gareth Southgate to leave the striker who has scored four goals this season for Chelsea in the English Premier League further made it possible for Nigeria to once again push for his services.

According to the NFF President Pinnick, the striker will make his decision in 2020 when they hope to have talks with him although reports in England suggest he would have represented England by then as he is in line to be called up for the next round of international matches in October. Pinnick said: "But, like you know, these kids are very independent-minded.

In fact, we have been told to wait until April 2020, when he [Abraham] 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.''

News Update

The Minister said these after a meeting of the FCT Security Committee which comprises heads of the police, military and para-military formations in FCT as well as Area Council Chairmen and religious leaders.

The cheery news is coming as Minister of State, FCT, Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu will headline a distinguished galaxy of stakeholders for the FCT pension stakeholders retreat this week.

Finally last week, Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) took over managing and operating the newly- completed Nigeria-Korea Model School in Abuja.

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his Administration will continue to fashion policies designed to ensure employment and security of all citizens, especially the youth.

Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has decried the lynching of three suspected traffic robbers popularly known as 'One chance' in Dutsen Alhaji area of Abuja last week.

Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) always makes public the allocations in line with President Muhammadu Buhari's Change Agenda which harps on transparency, anti-corruption and accountability, tenets which FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has made his beacon.
