    Why do we always insult these foreign born Nigerian players each time they make their choice. What is so big deal if they choose to play for the countries where they were raised or grew up. Just that these two players chose England over Nigeria doesn’t mean that they look down on Nigeria or they hate Nigeria, is a matter of choice, and every player can not play for Nigeria. We should be mature in our criticisms and condemnations, they are still Nigerians and we should encourage, support and respect their decisions; besides that, why must we have those players in the super Eagles, when we have young talented players at the moment in the Super Eagles, all we need is for the coach to put their talent together and organize the team, then we should go places.

      No need blowing this out of proportion, where did you see anybody insulting anyone here? Maybe someone is still gonna come out with some insults but as at the time of your post, there is nothing like an insult here so relax bro.

      @Bobo Colorado Springs, i see no insults anywhere, all i see is people wishing them well and hoping for their sake their story should be different from past Nigerians who were used and dumped. Stop the insinuations that they are being insulted.

    I wonder when we stop insulting people for making their decision. Whether good or bad it’s their choice and should be respected. Many of those shouting this and that won’t even blink if they get a visa to travel to England, they would the Nigeria they claim to love.

    I might not be happy seeing these two promising young players go to play for England but without the English football education which they got they won’t have gone far.
    One question away come to mind each time I see young Nigerians doing well in England.. Is it only Nigerians who move to this countries? Don’t Ghanaian or other African countries migrate to England as well.. The few Nigerians that manage to travel out are the ones supplying England with good players.

    What this means is simply we have loads of wasted talents in Nigeria, the few ones which might not even be the most talented of them all are the ones becoming the deli ali, saka and the rest.. When they get the right environment to Florish they do great..
    I weep for my nation.
    If only we can Get things right, we won’t be in such situations.

    We should just wish both of them well. We sure not gonna miss any one of them. It will only take a bad weekend at WILLIAM HILLS for English fans to rip both Tomori n Tammy up. Lol

    @Bobo & Ololo, I concur with you guyz.

    Am a big fan of British boxer Joshua, but his of 9ja root.
    is a choice

     
  • Saint P. 3 weeks ago

    Everybody is entitled to his or her choices, Nigerian/English born or not. My pick is that even Black British Players with no African root or heritage has got their challenges while playing for the national team especially the senior team, being good is not enough, you have to be exceptionally good or else there are always problems lying in waiting, no need of going deep into that really, I wouldn’t advise a Son, Brother or Friend to just dive in playing for the National Team after one good season.

    These men have always wanted to play f or England even though NfF and the sport ministry came first to show interest which is a good attempt. Looking at t he past where we lost players like David Alaba because NFF didn’t make an attempt on him this making him to play for Austria. This revelation has made NFF to open the door of opportunities to Nigerians players Norn in the Diaspora to come and play for t he SE.
    Abraham and Tomori are not the only Nigerian born in the Diaspora, there are many who are hungry and eager to want to play ..
    Also when looking for players , don’t just pick them because they are over them , pick them because they are exceptional ..

    It’s time to go forward…

    Please, fellow forumites, my comment was based on the other write up not on this one, but what I said is true. If you don’t believe me go to ” Southgate names Abraham, Tomori in England squad for Euro championship qualifiers” then read the comments and you will see what I am talking about. I guess I posted on the wrong topic, but they are the same issue.

    I actually saw this coming not surprised at all. The boys don’t always listen and learn but in the end it’s their decision and we must respect that. Honestly they both lost out on what would have been a very illustrious career playing for the super eagles. Keep the form or faze out.

    Frank Lampard said it was upto the players to decide where to switch allegiance but I don’t believe that.
    He apparently was the tool Southgate used to lure the two players to play for England.Obviously,the players would fear for their future in the club knowing it’s upto Lampard to make decisions on their first team roles at Chelsea.What people say to the press may not be what happens behind the back.
    Had Chelsea a foreign manager things probably could have been different,this national coaches parley better with indeginous club coaches.

    Congratulations to the guys. We can only be happy for them as young Chelsea stars of Nigerian decent. There is absolutely no need to criticize their decision.

    It’s possible that they succeed with the English team. However, I honestly think the chances for that will be slim with Abraham. England is always blessed with crazy forwards. Hence, there is so much competition to face.

    Besides, you don’t know some unseen dilemma these guys might have been put in compelling them to make this decision.

    Let’s just encourage them and wish them success.
