KANU - Nigeria is Bigger Than Abraham, Tomori

Following the recent development on the hottest tug -of -war between Nigeria and England that saw the United Kingdom finish top, Former Super Eagles of Nigeria striker, Nwankwo Kanu is unmoved following England handing Chelsea duo of Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori international call-up.

The Arsenal Legend lend his voice on the most trendy topic in international football in recent time as a way of calming unhappy fans in Nigeria over the disappointing development.

"Our problem is that whenever someone starts doing well, we start chasing them which is not bad because other countries do that. I feel we don’t need to force people to play for the country, because Nigeria is bigger than any player."

"We have quality players everywhere so we can’t continue to beg one player to play for us. Nigeria cannot beg, players have to beg Nigeria. The best way to always go about this is talking to them to play for their fatherland."

"If they do, it’s good for us and if they don’t we move on. That’s football and I think we have enough and we can win matches without them.”
