Abraham to ACL Sports on the possibility of representing Nigeria, he said: ”Anything is still possible.
I have not ruled it out completely but we will see!” The Blues star has made two appearances for England in friendly matches but the caps earned against Brazil and Germany do not tie him down to Three Loins for the rest of his career but the youngster has not been invited by Gareth Southgate for close to two years but remains a key member of the U21 team.
