Quote:
Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has opened up on his decision to represent England at the senior international level over Nigeria.

Tomori was eligible to play for the Super Eagles but chooses to go with three lions after he was called up for the Euro 2020 qualifiers with Czech Republic and Bulgaria few weeks back.

The 21-year-old has now revealed that Nigeria never try to get him, and it was only England that showed interest in him and it would have been difficult to say no to them.

”I just wanted to go as far as I can and that also involves playing for the national team. ”It was a difficult choice for me.

It was something I had to think about for a year or two and I was previously at the U-21 Euros, so I wasn’t thinking too far ahead, but then there was a lot of talk and questions and I had to make a decision.

”England called me up in September, and I didn’t get a call up from anyone when they called me up, it was hard to say no to them.”

Tomori who however still eligible to switch allegiance to Nigeria, because he not been capped by the Garrett Southgate, said he loves Nigerian culture, food and the music.

”I enjoy Nigerian music, I’m Nigerian, it’s my culture and I’m very proud of it. I enjoy the food too -pounded yam and Jollof especially.”

My take is it is still of EN interest since it relates to SE callup. So it remains for now.

Tomori's folks are proper Ibadan folks. His dad went to GCI and I think his grandad was a prof at UCH.

We need to leave these young men alone. He has made his choice & we should wish him well. He made the best choice for his football career.

This is ridiculous! The player is not an Eagle, how can this be on Eagles Nest?


And he needs to go fook himself! He loves England and wants England! He needs to stop lying and insulting our intelligence! I have no issues with him playing for England, but he is an idi0t for the comments he made here.. what does he take us for? fools? :rolleyes: If you really wanted to play for Nigeria, you will reject England. Stup1d idi0t of a person. He thinks he has sense.

At the end of the day, people will treat you exactly how you treat yourself. honestly, I can't even blame these dual-nationals for these insults. Nigerians are the ones to blame because the moment NFF start showing interest after players has publicly Signified their Intentions of playing for Nigeria, the better for us. Until then, we would constantly be Used, Abused, Disrespected etc. Afterall, Shola Ameobi had a WC appearance despite his SE rejection

Doesn’t hurt to try esp if they don’t need to file papers.

That’s like saying because a chick can say no you won’t even try to approach, check ya ego abeg. If a player can help us you approach them worse they can say is no...and you keep it moving.

This Tomori guy is a liar. If he really wanted to play for Nigeria he would have turned down the last call up he got from England and indicated to the NFF that he wanted a switch. Also i find it hard to belive the NFF never looked his way all this time. Dude is just trying to save face. People need to move on from him. The guy was never interested in Nigeria from the beginning.

I wouldn't say he is a liar but as I mentioned in an previous thread, these boys are not just naive twenty-something year olds as some may like to think. They know exactly what they are doing. Read his quotes rather than the writer's paraphrasing and headlines, everything Tomori said is most likely true. Technically, he never did receive a call up from Nigeria and maybe that is his definition of a real and confirmed interest. He knows Nigeria made contact were indeed interested but is playing it off as something unofficial which to be fair, one could say is true. At the end of the day, he only received an official invitation from one country.

Yup that's likely how it happened, he also told Canada that he isn't ready to accept a call up from them yet.
