Despite the call-up to the England squad, Tammy Abraham remains eligible to play for Nigeria – the country of his father’s birth – having not played a competitive senior game for England in his career to date.

Abraham has two caps for England but those appearances were in friendlies against Germany and Spain in November 2017.

If Abraham plays in any of England’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria, he would become ineligible to play for Nigeria.

Abraham insists his dream has always been to play for England.

Abraham said, according to Standard Sport: “I’m a player growing up in England, playing in the Premier League. My ambitions were always to play for England.

“Obviously it’s nice to be wanted by two nations, two nations that I love. But my main focus is England.”
