Super Eagles handler Gernot Rohr said he’s not losing sleep over the decision of Chelsea youngsters Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham to represent England ahead of Nigeria.
The duo, are eligible to play for Nigeria or England, but it seems they fancy playing for the three lions ahead of the three-time African Champions.
Rohr admits that both players interest him, but revealed they aren’t in his plans for the future.
“They are both interesting players, but we have made our immediate plans without Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori,”.
“They are not interested in discussing their international options at the moment and we need to respect that.”
The Franco-German tactician added that Tomori is focusing on Chelsea’s career and doesn’t want to give anything away regarding his International future.
“Tomori is a very good friend of our player Ola Aina (former Chelsea and England youth international) and he said he does not want to discuss this for now.
“We have to focus on what we have and not lose focus about what people say all the time.”
Gernot Rohr will lead Nigeria out against Brazil in a high-profile friendly in Singapore on October 13.
