Why I Chose England Ahead Of Nigeria – Fikayo Tomori

WHY Chose England Fikayo Tomori

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has finally explained the motive behind his decision to accept England’s call-up ahead of Nigeria which is the country of his parents.

The 21-year-old has been impressive for Chelsea this season in the Premier League and his performances earned him a call up to the Three Lions.

But before being called to play for England in the coming 2020 Euro qualifiers against Bulgaria and Czech Republic, the NFF were expecting Tomori to pledge his allegiance to Nigeria.

Tomori has now revealed that he chose to play for England ahead of Nigeria because the England national team were the first to invite him to play.

He added that he would have also picked Nigeria or even Canada if these two nations had invited him as well.

“England is such a big nation, as well as Nigeria and Canada, so I think I was going to be happy with whoever called me up – but it’s nice it is England.

“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 that I care 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.
