Chelsea Defender Tomori, Tottenham's Onomah Open To Representing NigeriaChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has refused to rule out the possibility of representing the Super Eagles in the near future, and the same applies to another member of the victorious England U20 World Cup-winning squad, Tottenham Hotspur's Josh Onomah.

Tammy Abraham was seriously considering turning out for the Nigerian national team, only for the Nigerian Federation to make him pull the plug on his plans after they went to announce they were on the brink of securing his services, which infuriated the authorities in England.

''It's still the same thing for Tammy Abraham, England have eyes on him as there's talk he could be recalled from his loan spell at Swansea City,'' a top source told allnigeriasoccer.com.

''He doesn't have a chance with England when they have Rashford, Defoe, Kane. It will be hard work for him except England cap-tie him to get Nigeria out of the way and they have no competitive games before the World Cup.''

He added : ''Fikayo is open to playing for anybody, he was born in Canada. He won't be too difficult to convince, anybody that comes first he'll play.

''Josh Onomah too does not have a problem. He has been approached but these things should be done in secret.''

Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi and Ola Aina, who all featured for the Super Eagles against Zambia, had caps for England youth teams before they applied for a change of association.
