Chelsea strike Tammy Abraham has decided to wade into a battle between two West African giants, Nigeria and Ghana.

The 22-year-old Chelsea academy product qualifies to play for either Nigeria or England, and he settled for England, despite the advances made by the Nigerian Football Federation, to lure him to choose Nigeria.

The Chelsea striker appeared on the BBC’s Football Focus programme, where he revealed how he has been spending his time on lockdown.

Tammy Abraham admitted that his family members are with him and they have helped in the cooking.

He said: “My sister or my mum or dad cook for me, I am lucky to have them in the house and not have to do it myself.”

Tammy Abraham was then asked by Football Focus to choose between the Nigerian and Ghanaian versions of jollof rice – an argument that has been going on for many years, and he chose the Nigerian version.

He said: “Can I cook jollof? Absolutely not but my mum can so probably the meal I have had most in quarantine has been jollof rice.

“The Nigeria version is my choice to be honest. The Ghanaian one is a little bit more spicy but it is about the flavours, not just about the spice, how it sits in your mouth, how it digests into your stomach.”
