    I honestly hope Rohr would consider him for the national team. Of course he did not take the super Eagles chance in the first place because of his love for England , nevertheless I still fee that he should be called.

    The nff don’t have to contact this guy directly to know of he is interested. They can use Aina who is based in Italy to pass a message to him. Tomori will definitely add more value to SE defence.

    He is not even thinking about super eagles. In an interview he said he was choosing between Canada and England, he did not even mention Nigeria. Get over it!
