Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham is wanted by Nigeria with the 21 year old striker yet to play a competitive game for England.

Abraham has been in good form for Chelsea this season, scoring seven goals in the Premier League.

Ahead of Nigeria’s friendly against Brazil on October 13, former Barcelona winger and Nigerian international Emmanuel Amuneke has urged Nigeria boss Gernot Rohr not to call up Abraham because he is yet to make up his mind about playing for Nigeria.

Amuneke told “At this point in time, it will be a distraction for the team if the Nigeria Football Federation and the Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr continue to focus their attention on Chelsea forward, Tammy Abraham.

“Yes, Abraham has shown that he’s a quality striker going by the number of goals he has scored for Chelsea this ongoing season.

“However, trying to lure him to play for the Super Eagles against Brazil when he has not made up his mind won’t be the best choice at the moment.

“Besides, Victor Osimhen has been impressive for his club, Lille in the Ligue 1, scoring goals at will. He should be encouraged and not be distracted.”
