President of the Nigerian Football federation, Amaju Pinnick discusses on the possibility of recruiting Foreign Based Nigerian Players in the National Team.

In an interview with Nigerian television station Plus TV Africa, the President Admitted that Players are made to decide if they're to play for The Nigerian national team or a different National team. Amaju Pinnick cited Tammy Abraham as an Example.

"I don't believe that's an issue, you have a choice, it's not just today, at a point John Fashanu refused to play for Nigeria, I was still in secondary school if not primary school," said Pinnick.

"We are all human beings, we are subjected to the various choices that we make, so to me it's their choice.

"I'm very close to Tammy Abraham's father, we grew up together, I've known him for over 40 years.

"I know the history of Tammy but if at the end of the day he decides to play for England we just wish him only good luck, Tomori too we wish him good luck."

Despite the refusal of Tammy Abraham to join the Super Eagles, Amaju Pinnick seems not to be disturbed and is contented with the Calibers of Players in the National team.

"When we have people like Dessers that was even selected among the Eredivisie Team of the Season, I think we are happy and we are home. Prolific goalscorer. 

"We have Osimhen that is doing very well, I cannot tell you that Tammy Abraham is better than Osimhen, it's not possible. 

"Let us watch and see the future of these players, we are happy and very contented with what we have right now, the only thing we need to do is consolidate and build a very strong Super Eagles that can contest for the qualifying rounds and World Cup proper, we have a very young team." He concluded.
