Super Eagles

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, has said Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham’s decision not to represent Nigeria at the moment will be respected.

The Chelsea duo are not looking to commit to the West African nation at the present time.

Naija News reports that Tomori and Abraham just broke into the Chelsea first-team this season.

Tomori had played for Derby County in the English Football League (EFL) last season, while Abraham was on the books of Aston Villa.

“They are both interesting players, but we have made our immediate plans without Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori.

“They are not interested in discussing their international options at the moment and we need to respect that,” Rohr told BBC Sport.

The Super Eagles take on Brazil in an international friendly match on October 13 in Singapore.
