Why Ex-Chelsea Player Fikayo Tomori Should Have Chosen To Represent Nigeria And Not England



Oluwafikayomi Oluwadamilola Tomori has come a long way in his career ever since breaking onto the scene from Chelsea’s academy few years ago. As someone who came through the Blues’ youth ranks, Tomori was expected to feature regularly at the club for years to come.

The 24-year old did play frequently during Frank Lampard’s first season as Chelsea coach, but he gradually lost his place in the team the following term before he was finally sold to AC Milan for £25 million.

Tomori has since revived his career in Italy, winning the Scudetto with Milan last season as well as becoming an important player in the club’s project.

Although Fikayo made the right decision of moving to a different country and club in search of guaranteed game time, his choice to represent the Three Lions of England instead of Nigeria hasn’t really worked out well for him.

With the World Cup around the corner, Tomori is still struggling to get in the England squad despite the fact he’s made more successful tackles than any other English defender across Europe’s top 5 leagues since the start of 2021/22 season.

It’s quite ridiculous that a player like Harry Maguire who’s barely played for Man United this season is starting tonight while someone like Tomori who’s one of the first names in Milan’s starting XI is left out of England squad.
