“I am a Nigerian but England called me first” – Chelsea defender Tomori
21-year-old Fikayo Tomori is proud to be from Africa and he just revealed the reason for pledging his allegiance with the Three Lions.
“I just wanted to go as far as I can and that also involves playing for the national team,” Tomori told OmaSportsTV.
“It was a difficult choice for me. It was something I had to think about for a year or two and I was previously at the U21 Euros, so I wasn’t thinking too far ahead, but then there was a lot of talk and questions and I had to make a decision. “England called me up in September, and I didn’t get a call up from anyone when they called me up, it was hard to say no to them.”
“But I enjoy Nigerian music, I’m Nigerian, it’s my culture and I’m very proud of it. I enjoy the food too – pounded yam and jollof especially,” he added.
