Striker Tammy Abraham provided an assist for AS Roma in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday.

The player who dumped Nigeria for England at international level accounted for an assist in the 2-0 win over Real Sociedad.

Jose Mourinho managed Roma were too good for the Spanish side.

Prior to receiving his first competitive cap for the England senior team in October 2019, Abraham was eligible to represent Nigeria through his paternal lineage and was sounded out by the Nigerian Football Association.

Abraham’s father is close friends with former Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick and on 21 September 2017, Pinnick claimed that Abraham had switched his allegiance to Nigeria.

The forward issued a statement the same day denying the claim and reaffirming his availability for England selection. Upon receiving his first England call-up in November 2017, Abraham stated that there was never any prospect of him choosing to play for Nigeria.

Tammy Abraham is currently in his second season at Stadio Olimpico after being allowed to depart Chelsea shortly after their Champions League triumph in 2021.

The England international has contributed 34 goals and 11 assists in 88 appearances and helping Roma win last season’s Europa Conference League
