Abraham Happy With Hudson-Odoi Partnership

Abraham Happy With Hudson-Odoi Partnership

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham says it’s a dream to play alongside Callum Hudson-Odoi in the first team this season. Abraham has made an electric start to the Premier League season, grasping his opportunity with both hands after developing his game down in the Championship for the past few campaigns.

Hudson-Odoi broke into the team at the back end of last season before an Achilles injury cut short his campaign.
Now back to full fitness, and after signing a new deal at Stamford Bridge following a summer of interest from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, Hudson-Odoi is expected to be pushing for regular starts in the weeks to come.

Abraham, who has also been linked with putting pen to paper on a new contract at the Bridge, says he loves playing with Hudson-Odoi after they came up through the ranks at the club together. “When I play with Callum, I just enjoy watching him,” he said.

“I just stand still sometimes. It’s nice to have him back. He’s still getting that match fitness back and he’s looking sharp. Give him a couple of games to settle in and he’ll be flying again.

“I don’t think it has hit us all really. It’s dream for us. We have all dreamed as kids about playing for the Chelsea first team, and we are making it happen. Not only that, we are also getting results. It is a bit like playing with your mates.”

Chelsea fans will be hoping to see the pair in action on Wednesday night when the Blues host Ajax in the Champions League.

The west London outfit are in third place in Group H, with three points from their first two games. A home defeat to Valencia was followed by a strong win on the road against Lille.
Ajax are currently sitting pretty at the top of the group after two wins from two before their trip to London.

    Update: QPR Ebere Eze Doesn’t Need FIFA Clearance To Play For Nigeria Despite Representing England U20

    Per the rules governing the eligibility of a player to play for another country without requiring FIFA’s permission to switch, QPR Ebere Eze doesn’t need to go through the process if he decide to play for the Super Eagles, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
    This portal yesterday ran a story base on reports from the side of coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr who insisted that the player need his switch of allegiance to be confirmed by FIFA before he is eligible to play for Nigeria after representing England at U20 level.
    The report is however not true as Eze, who is viewed as one of the best midfielders in the English Championship represented England in a friendly tournament organised by the German FA and not UEFA as posted by this portal yesterday.
    Eze has played seven matches for the U20 of England, four in the 8 team Elite League competition organised by the German FA and three in friendly games. He has twice made the bench in FIFA/UEFA organised tournament but didn’t get to play.

    A line from the guidelines by FIFA for players switch of allegiance stated clearly that a player will require approval to switch nationality only if he has played in an official tournament, the section is quoted below.
    Principle of National Team Eligibility
    Article 5.1 states: “Any person holding a permanent nationality that is not dependent on residence in a certain country is eligible to play for the representative teams of the association of that country.” The terms of this rule prevent temporary residents who are not otherwise citizens of the relevant country being considered eligible.

    Article 5.1 further adds: “…any player who has already participated in a match (either in full or in part) in anofficial competition of any category or any type of football for one association may not play an international match for a representative team of another association.” The term “official competition” refers to matches played for representative teams in competitions organised by FIFA or any confederation (i.e. not friendly games).

    Therefore it’s safe to say if Eze requires any form of switch before playing for Nigeria it won’t be tedious and time consuming like the case was with Ola Aina which took twelve months but it will be like that of Alex Iwobi whose switched was done swiftly because he only played for England youth team at friendly level.


    • Promise 4 years ago

      Rohr please kindly act fast

    • The Elite league is an expanded invitational competition formerly called the 4 nations Under 20. It was originally a tournament for the 4 countries that broder the Alpine mountains: Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland. It was expanded to include other countries and is reserved for players “eligible for UEFA competitions”. The invitational friendly tournament is not a FIFA nor UEFA organized competition despite it being held during an official FIFA international break.

      Ebere does not require a code switch, just papers filed with FIFA for their attention. It is different for Ovie Ejaria, another midfielder in the English Championship who has represented England during the U20 world cup in 2016. The Liverpool player loaned to Reading FC is another fantastic midfielder who we should snap up and we need to submit the documents now, so that at some point next year, he can join our supremely talented midfield by this time next year of Wilfred Ndidi, Okechukwu Azubuike, Oghenekaro Etebo, Joe Aribo, Alex Iwobi and Ebere Eze.

      This will be a significant improvement on the midfield during AFCON. The AFCOn midfield was an improvement on the world cup.

      Continuous improvement

    • I like Eze very good but why are we always running after all these dual nationality players when we have our full blooded Nigerian players doing very well with their clubs like chidera Ejude of Heerenveen of Holland .very good and young player I think he is a very good addition to the national team.just 21 and he is very good on one on one with defenders good dribble young and a regular.pls let Rohr look at his side.

  • Omo9ja 4 years ago

    My message to CSN. Please leave Abraham issue aside and let’s focus on our own.

    I don carry am come again. I have a Nigerian/ English player that everyone knew on this forum but Nigerians are not paying attention to him.

    This is the return of Kanu.
    This the missing link in
    the current Super Eagles team.

    I’m the one that introduced Aribo that every Nigerian is enjoying today.
    I thank you God for that.

    Kanu is back. The player I’m about to call his name his name is a master passer. He haven’t represented England main team yet.

    This player is a baller. Dedicated. If he wish to play for Nigeria, ah…. plus EZE and Aribo in the Super Eagles squad chai, chai,, ah, coach Rohr what do you waiting for.

    The name of the player I’m talking about is “Ovie Ejaria”

    Please CSN, instead of giving us Abraham’s news, I will advise you to tell Oga Rohr about this raw talent.

    This “Ovie Ejaria” is too much. He is a reading FC player. Current team
    Reading (on loan from Liverpool)
    14. Although, is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for English club Reading on loan from Liverpool. He is a current England U21 international. NFF can still convince him to play for Nigeria.

    Go and watch QPR vs Reading match. The match ended 2-2.

    I will try my best on this Ovie Ejaria.

    Coach Rohr supporters, are you watching now ba?

    You guys have been calling on Eze that I have been talking about so teeeeeeee but Oga Rohr refused to called him.

    Now, NFF already stepped in. They said coach Rohr have to called him for Afcon qualifiers. Good news.

    This Ovie Ejaria NFF have to do something about.

    Eze and
    Ovie Ejaria are good enough to represent Nigeria.

    Oga Rohr, what do you waiting for? Let’s gooooo. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Dr. Drey 4 years ago

      Hehehehe….buy the time Ovie makes his debut for Nigeria, i’ll be waiting patiently for you to come and claim it was you who ‘discovered’ him, same way you lay claims to ‘discovering’ Aribo, Paul Onuachu and Esiti…Players who had previously trialed with our youth teams in years past…..LMAO

    • Chairmanfemi 4 years ago

      @Omo9ja, Just stop your stupid talks please! So many people have been mentioning OVIE EJARIA before now. Stop claiming you discovered this boys. Who are you to discover them?? As if we all are dumb. You didn’t discover any body.

  • Ololo 4 years ago

    Those boys it would take a year to gain clearance should regret by now.. Eg ejarie, before they would get the desired clearance from FIFA other fring players should have established themselves in the first team.. Waiting for a year is pretty too long to wait.. This was exactly why Aina didn’t make the team to the world cup, he got cleared when the team was playing their last match for world cup qualifiers when he was already in the team before their first match.
    Soon this half guys would start taking every invitation they receive very carefully. Imagine if eze wasn’t eligible, he would have to wait till next year probably when his new found form might have been cold.

  • Omo9ja 4 years ago

    Eze doesn’t need FIFA to approve his switch of nationality to Nigeria. He is free to play for Nigeria without any delay. Is left to him to decide.

    So, if NFF did not stepped in, coach Rohr will never called Eze?

    If you are not German/Nigerian players or playing in Germany, the chances are slim. Too bad. Oga Rohr, we are watching you ooo.

    The next one is “Ovie Ejaria”. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Alaye mi
      U get multifaceted wahala o
      So Aribo played in Germany before his call up?
      Dennis too abi?
      Olayinka too abi?
      Otabor too abi?
      Josh Maja too abi?

      A times I see your comments as if you’re just trying to get attention or just for comment sake. You do have valid points atimes too though.

      Calling players up isn’t as soft as it looks to us and that’s because this is Nigeria where all sorts of bizarre things happen.

      Ebere Eze should be part of Super eagles very soon.

      • Dr. Drey 4 years ago

        You are right my brother…..and when you think of the fact that we almost missed 2018 WC for fielding an ineligble player in our last match against Algeria after we got docked 3 points. If not for the fact that we already had qualification in the bag as early as the macthday 4 of the qualifiers with 2 matches to go, we would have had the hardwork and toil of a young generation thrown to the wind.

        We also fielded Stephen Sunday in a qualifier in 2012 and could have been docked if we had eventually qualified for that year’s afcon.

        Sometimes its better to be safe than be sorry. We’d rather wait to get clarification on Eze’s status, than to rush to cap him and get punished unnecessarily.

    • Dr. Drey 4 years ago

      Its as if NEPA took light in your village wen Rohr invited Eze, Akpom, Aina and Maja to the eagles camp in London ahead of the friendly we played against Senegal in 2017.

    • Ololo 4 years ago

      common stop that.. don’t talk what you don’t know.. did rohn not invite him to train with the super eagles many years back alongside aino

      • Uchenna 4 years ago

        Don’t mind Omo9ja o
        It seems Rohr is owing Omo9ja something and all Omo9ja wants in return is Rohr’s head…..God no go gree for u Omo9ja….. Oga scouter …lol….na u scout Messi for Barcelona then self..and dem no day pay u for d job o….lmfaoooo
        What a selfless service you’re rendering….make e be for you as you wish for Rohr Omo9ja…u must answer “Ameeen” o…lol

  • Hmmm..because of iwobi’s inconsistencies, I’ll support the callings of Eze. But with indidi, Etebo, Aribo, Azeez, okecukwu..that’s 5 already and we need just 4 plus iwobi and Eze making 6. That means we don’t need Azeez and okecukwu if we are to go for Ejaria. Eze is ours no doubt that was y he responded to Aribo’s tweets after the match against Brazil ” PROUD”. Be still have a left footed central defender in Udokhai who’s now waiting for a call up after rejecting world cup opportunity, we have Ejuke,we have Ehizibue but we can’t call all. It’s one by one.
    As for me…
    Ezenwa should leave for a better goal keeper, we can also do better on Shehu’s case, then Esiti and may be Onuachu who is not a national team materials..after that, I think I’m ok with the rest
