Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori reveals why he chose England over Nigeria, Canada

Chelsea defender, Fikayo Tomori has revealed why he decided to choose England over Nigeria and Canada.

Tomori, who is also eligible to play for Nigeria and Canada was included in England squad for their Euro 2020 qualifying games against Czech Republic and Bulgaria on October 11 and 14.

Speaking on why he decided to choose England ahead of Nigeria and Canada, the 21-year-old said he would have represented either Nigeria or Canada had they extended an invitation to him before the Three Lions did.

“England is such a big nation, as well as Nigeria and Canada, so I think I was going to be happy with whoever called me up – but it’s nice it is England,” Tomori told Goal.

“It wasn’t England all the way. I had certain people and certain things that I had to consider. I spoke to my family and people that I care about it and that’s the decision I came to. So, when England came calling, it was difficult to say no.

“It was just more of a thing I was waiting for a call-up because the last international break I didn’t get a call-up from anyone. This international break, I was waiting for a call-up and England called me up.”
