England national team coach, Gareth Southgate has named two Nigerian youngsters of Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham who are also first-team players for Chelsea, in the Three Lions squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Both Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham who are also eligible to play for Nigerian will be making their first international debut for England should they take up the call to represent England. This also means Nigeria will again be missing out on yet another sets of young and promising talents to England, as the list continues to grow.
Those invited alongside Tomori and Tammy Abraham by Southgate are:
Tom Heaton (Aston Villa),
Jordan Pickford (Everton),
Nick Pope (Burnley)
Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool),
Ben Chilwell (Leicester),
Joe Gomez (Liverpool),
Michael Keane (Everton),

Those that missed out from the England call up are Lingard, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka miss out through injury, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, recalled to the squad for last month’s matches against Bulgaria and Kosovo, drops out again.
Tammy got his first call in 2017 for England, but it was for a friendly game. But Tomori who is also eligible for Canada (place of birth) and Nigeria through his parents, is getting his first senior team call up, and we wish them all the best!
