NFF working on getting Swansea City's Tammy Abraham to play for Nigeria

The president of Nigeria Footbal Federation Amaju Pinnick is still persuading Swansea City teenager Tammy Abraham to play for the Super Eagles rather than England senior team.
Pinnick revealed that he has a close relationship with Abraham’s father and he is hoping he can help with his bid. Abraham, 19, who was born to Nigerian parents, has already played for England in the U-21 category but can still make the decision to switch to the Eagles because he is yet to play for the England senior team. Last season, Abraham scored 26 goals in 48 games on loan at Championship club Bristol City.

He said “We are working on getting Abraham, Tammy is like my son. His father and I grew up in the same neighbourhood, so when they talk about him, I just laugh because I know what to do. You take a first look at the team and you see players like William Ekong, Wilfred Ndidi, Leon Balogun, Alex Iwobi, Chidozie Awaziem, Tyronne Ebuehi, Kelechi Iheanacho and now we have Aina as well, I believe we are so blessed and that this team will cause a big stir in Russia, and if not in Russia, in Qatar in five years’ time.”
