Chelsea defender and England international, Fikayo Tomori, was not utilized again by Gareth Southgate in the Euro 2020 qualifiers which England thrashed Montenegro 7-0 on Thursday.
Tomori, a Nigerian-Canadian-British citizen was called up by England alongside Tammy Abraham, Nigerian- British as well, last month.
Nigeria was also interested in the duo but they officially declared for England.
Abraham is now cap tied to England for life having played in two matches and scored a goal in the Three Lions’ qualifying match against Montenegro.
Tomori is yet to make his international debut for England. This isn’t surprising since England still has top defenders, Michael Keane, Tyrone Mings, John Stones and Harry Maguire in the team.
This means there is hope for Nigeria as Tomori can still qualify to switch over his allegiance since he hasn’t played for England yet.
But if the 21- year old plays in England’s next game against Kosovo on Sunday November 17, even for a minute, Nigeria loses him for life.
