Nigeria born England international Fikayo Tomori says he’s happy to make his Three Lions debut and admitted it was a stroll in the park for him.
The 20 year old was in the England squad for game against Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Montenegro but finally had a chance to make his bow against Kosovo on Sunday in the Euro qualifiers.
He told reporters: “It’s pretty mad. If you told me 12 months ago that I’d make my England debut, I’d probably have looked at you funny because it just seemed so far away.
“But now that I’m here I’m grateful, it’s been a lot of hard work and determination, a lot of focus, and hopefully I can make more caps and maintain that focus I’ve shown.
“I just have to keep on trying to stay focused at club level, continue playing games and playing well, taking the opportunities that are given to me and hopefully the manager picks me in the summer,” he enthused.
Tomori who has been one of revelations for Chelsea this season, opted to represent the Three Lions of England ahead of Nigeria and Canada.
He made 44 appearances for Derby County last season and was voted the Club’s player of the season.
