Chelsea Defender Fikayo Tomori To Decide Whether To Represent England, Nigeria Or Canada

Fikayo Tomori

England, Nigeria, and Canada are ready to battle for the services of Chelsea’s defender Fikayo Tomori.

The 21-year-old was born in Calgary, Canada, to Nigerian parents but raised in England. He is eligible to represent the senior national teams of Nigeria, Canada, and England despite playing for Canada’s Under 20 team and for England’s Under 20 and Under 21 teams.

Speaking on the situation,  Tomori said: ‘I’m a citizen of all three [countries] so we’ll see. I was born in Canada and lived there about seven or eight months old. My family is Nigerian, obviously I live in England. It’s nice to have that. I can’t play Under-21 football anymore so the last international break I didn’t get called up to anyone. Next one maybe we’ll see.’

His manager Frank Lampard also spoke on the situation and insisted that he won’t try to influence his decision.

Lampard said: ‘It’s his choice. I wouldn’t tell him where to play internationally. But he’s played for [England] Under-21s and if he continues with his form and keeps improving then, of course, I would expect there to be potential for England if Gareth chooses to select him.

‘He shouldn’t worry about it at the minute. He should just worry about how he’s playing every game or how he trains every day and that will be a nice problem for him, hopefully, if he’s eligible for three. He can choose which one he wants.’

Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, has revealed he is considering returning to the Super Eagles over one year since his retirement.

Ighalo, announced his retirement from international duty with Nigeria after his five-star performance at the Africa cup of nations.

He said having to travel the distance between China where he played for Shanghai Shenhua to Nigeria for national duty was affecting him so he had to retire to allow the young ones take over.

Ighalo moved to England in January, joining Manchester United on loan and
recently extended his loan deal with the Old Trafford outfit until January 2021.

Since his retirement, Victor Osimhen has been leading the Super Eagles attack with the forward scoring three goals during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games against the Republic of Benin and Lesotho.

Ighalo has now revealed that he has not given up on returning to the Super Eagles team.

“I am still in contact with Gernot Rohr and Amaju Pinnick, and they congratulated me on my loan deal,” Ighalo told Brila FM.

“I am still thinking about returning to the national team, but right now I want to concentrate on my club career.

“I left the national team because of the distance between Nigeria and China, but now that I am in Manchester and just like life and in my career, you never can tell.”
