Fikayo Tomori has revealed that he deliberated long and hard before committing his international future to England over Canada or Nigeria.

Choosing which country to represent has not been easy for the Chelsea defender, who is a new face in England’s squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria. Canada and Nigeria, who have failed to lure Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham from England, have courted Tomori.

Tomori was born in Canada to Nigerian parents and his family moved to Gravesend when he was baby. The 21-year-old has since represented Canada and England at youth level but he is yet to feature in a competitive international at senior level, meaning his allegiance remains up for grabs.
