‘How can you not call Tomori?’ – Nigerians react to omission of Chelsea star from England Euro 2020 squad
England manager Gareth Southgate has announced a 33-man provisional squad list for the upcoming European Championship.
Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, who were eligible to represent the Super
Eagles before pledging their futures to the Three Lions, have not been
selected by Southgate.
The Chelsea duo
were heavily courted by Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju
Pinnick before they chose to represent the 1966 world champions.
There are no places for two other players of Nigerian descent in the form of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli and Chelsea star Ross Barkley.
winger Bukayo Saka is in contention to represent his country of birth
at a senior tournament for the first time having made the provisional
squad, which will be pruned down to 26 latest Tuesday, June 1.
have taken to Twitter to react to the England squad list announced on Tuesday, with many questioning Southgate’s decision to axe Fikayo Tomori,
who spent the second half of the season on loan at Italian giants AC
Some have expressed surprise that
he was not picked and others are of the opinion that he should not have
rejected Nigeria when they came calling.

England go dey use Dem for important tournament if no be ordinary

striker they have, though it’s pretty harsh I kinda get the reasoning
not including Bamford. And I think Pope is injured. But Ramsdale, Coady,

year when he switches allegiance to Nigeria”.
