Tammy Abraham insists his international dream has always been to represent England.
The Chelsea striker is in line for his competitive England debut in the Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria having been given an international recall by England manager Gareth Southgate last week.
Nigeria have tried desperately to persuade Abraham to play for them – and the striker had initially refused to publicly state which country he wanted to play for.
But following his Southgate call-up, Abraham has confessed his first choice option has always been to represent England.
Abraham, who has scored nine times already this season, has two friendly caps for England, but will be fully committed for the rest of his career if he features against either Czech Republic or Bulgaria because they are competitive fixtures.
And Abraham said:
Quote
'For me, it's always nice to be wanted by two nations. Clearly it means you're doing something well.
'At the back of my head, I've always wanted to play for England. I was born and grown in England.
'My dream was always to play for England. It doesn't effect the fact Nigeria still wanted me, and it's a big nation. I love both nations. My head was just screwed on with England.
'I'm here and I'm ready to stay. I want to do the best I can. That means playing well, for club and country
