Nigerian-born English footballer Tammy Abraham has given the Super Eagles a major boost by refusing to rule out switching his allegiance to Nigeria.

The Chelsea 21-year-old striker is currently the joint-leading goal scorer with Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero in the Premier League, with 7 goals.

Speaking on switching allegiance to Nigeria, Abraham told Goal: ‘Yes, I have heard the talk. I have not really been focused on that yet.

‘I think when the time comes, the times comes. It is about focusing on Chelsea and hopefully scoring goals and getting victories.
