My Heart Has Always Wanted England And Not Nigeria – Tammy Abraham
Tammy Abraham is looking to fully commit to England, with the Chelsea striker eager to become a regular in the Three Lions fold and bring a debate regarding his international allegiance to a close.
The 22-year-old Chelsea striker was recently called up by England for the Euro 2020 qualifiers in the Czech Republic and Bulgaria taking place this month.
“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,” he said.
‘My dream was always to play for England. It doesn’t effect the fact Nigeria still wanted me, and it’s a big nation. I love both nations. My head was just screwed on with England.
‘I’m here and I’m ready to stay. I want to do the best I can. That means playing well, for club and country.
‘Just hopefully I can get many years experience under my belt for England.’
Abraham already has two senior caps to his name, but they were collected during friendly outings against Germany and Spain in November 2017.
