Tomori Still Eligible For Super Eagles After England Snub

Published

Chelsea defender, Fikayo Tomori, is still eligible to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria or Canada, the country of his birth.

The youngster was denied a debut in England’s two Euro 2020 qualifying matches against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria.

Although he was invited alongside Chelsea meet, Tammy Abraham, who is also a Nigerian, the defender was not used as a substitute during both games.

Tomori would have become cap-tied like Abraham if he had been summoned from the bench.

England coach, Southgate opted for Mason Mount, Jadon Sancho and Callum Wilson, as England thrashed Bulgaria 6-0 on Monday night.

At the moment, Tomori is well behind the trio of Tyrone Mings, Harry Maguire and Michael Keane in Southgate’s pecking order of central defenders.
