Naija News reports that England manager Gareth Southgate had included Chelsea duo, Tomori and Tammy Abraham in his 25-man squad to take on Czech Republic and Bulgaria in the Euro 2020 qualifier.
Speaking to Goal, Tomori described England, Nigeria and Canada as great nations.
He said: “It wasn’t England all the way. I had certain people and certain things that I had to consider. I spoke to my family and people about it and that’s the decision I came to. So, when England came calling, it was difficult to say no.
“It was just more of a thing I was waiting for a call-up because the last international break I didn’t get a call-up from anyone. This international break, I was waiting for a call-up and England called me up.
“I told my family and then it got announced on Thursday. Not at all (did I see it coming). The manager told me and I was like ‘oh’. It was a nice feeling. I’d say so (that it came quicker than I expected).”
He also expressed happiness linking up with the England squad, describing it as a turnaround for him.
