Kevin Oghenetega Tamaraebi Bakumo-Abraham was born on October 2, 1997, and he plays for the Chelsea football club of England with the name Tammy Abraham. He had played for England in the U18/19 levels.
He plays as a striker; his work rate for the team had never gone unnoticed by his coach Frank Lampard. He had made 7 (seven) appearances for Chelsea in this 2019/2020 season and had scored (7) goals in the premiership matches. He graduated from Chelsea Football Academy before signing a new five-year contract on 4 July 2017 with the Chelsea football club of England.
Now that Odion Ighalo had called it quits with the Super Eagles of Nigeria; after having 35 appearances with the senior team and scoring 16 goals, It is high time the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) authorities can go again and approach Tammy Abraham to come and wear the green white green jersey of Nigeria at the senior level.
ADVANTAGES OF PLAYING FOR NIGERIA.
It is also important to let Tammy Abraham know the advantages of playing for Nigeria at an international level, choosing England instead of Nigeria may be good and juicy but what happens after they had used you for Grade A FIFA International friendly matches.
There are many Nigerians that chose England and were only used for International friendly games, and after that, they were never considered as good and quality players for major tournaments like FIFA senior world cup or UEFA championships. They will always be dumped for other players that they are much better than in the game of football.
FRIENDLY MATCHES TIME TO TEST AND INJECT YOUNG PLAYERS IN THE TEAM
The friendly match between Nigeria Super Eagles and Brazil Senior national team will be on 13th of October at Singapore National Stadium at 5 am local time in Nigeria; this will be a period to test and inject young and new players into the squad not only for friendly matches but also for qualifying matches for major tournaments.
Coach Gernot Rohr is very good at blending old and young talents to achieve good results if Tammy is snapped for Nigeria, this is a time to inject him into the team and it will be a big boost for the team.
Most of the players that chose England instead of Nigeria to play for their national team, when they retire from active football; some of them come home jostling for position for administrative posts in Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). Nigeria needs them when they are at the peak of their careers and also when they retire from active football because both periods will benefit the Nigeria teams in all cadres from their experiences.
