Many Nigerians appear not to be taking Tammy Abraham’s first England call-up in good faith.

The 20-year-old, eligible for the Super Eagles through his father, was Thursday called up for the first time to represent the Three Lions in friendlies against Germany and Brazil.

Abraham, who plays his club football for Swansea on loan from Chelsea, was reportedly approached by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) but opted for the Europeans.

Now with the forward almost certain to feature in the next international break for England, Nigerians were not too pleased to have lost another promising prospect.

Here’s how few took the news of his invitation to the Three Lions on Twitter.
