Fatai Amao who is was formerly Super Eagles assistant coach, has urged Nigerians to forget about the Chelsea stars, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, after England handed them both international call-ups.
According to Fatai Amao, Nigeria should focus on the likes of upcoming stars like Victor Osimhen and Dennis Bonaventure instead of crying over Tammy Abraham and Tomori.
Noting that Gareth Southgate have added the duo to their squad list for upcoming clash for Euro 2020, if they accept the invitation and eventually feature in any of the matches, they will not be able to represent the Super Eagles again.
“I think we have turned a normal situation to an emergency. We are now putting the cart before the horse and that is why we are always looking for players born abroad with Nigerian root. We put ourselves into this situation because I believe we have qualities that are better than Abraham and Fikayo in the country,” He said.
He also added: “Seeing how Osimhen and Dennis are playing in the UEFA Champions League has shown that Nigeria is blessed with talents and they have not seen anything yet from Osimhen and Dennis.”
“So we should not lose sleep over the decision of Abraham and Fikayo to play for England. We all know those that made this kind of decision in the past and they were latter dump by England. So, Nigeria should forget about them and focus on the players we have. No need forcing anyone to play for Nigeria.”
