Chelsea Centre-Back, Fikayo Tomori, Still Eligible

Published

There had been controversy over the eligibility of Fikayo Tomori who was giving birth to in Canada by Nigerian parents and now lives in England.

Recall that England had overlooked the 21-year-old during their two Euro 2020 qualifying matches against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria last month after he was invited.

He was also dropped during England’s Euro 2020 qualifying victory against Montenegro on Thursday night.

Recall that he was invited alongside his Chelsea teammate, Tammy Abraham, and the centre-back was an unused substitute in the game against Montenegro.

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

England manager, Gareth Southgate opted for Joe Gomez, James Maddison and Tammy Abraham, as the Three Lions thrashed Montenegro 7-0 at Wembley Stadium to book their spots at next year’s European Championships.
