Tomori recalls when he broke Diego Costa's nose in Chelsea training

It was difficult to turn down Nigeria – Tomori

It was difficult to turn down Nigeria – Tomori

Tammy Abraham, the Chelsea striker, says the England team will walk off the pitch in Sofia on Monday if one of them is racially abused from the stands and the players feel that the Uefa protocol created to combat it proves ineffective.

Tomori, 21, was born in Canada and played for their under-20s team, and is also eligible to play for Nigeria.

"Depending on how you look at it, being eligible for three countries is a good thing and a bad thing", he said.

"It was just more of a thing I was waiting for a call-up because the last global break I didn't get a call-up from anyone". If there is any racist chanting, he feels the players should leave the field straight away - and he said that the England captain, Harry Kane, had led a conversation on that issue at a team meeting on Monday.

Fikayo Tomori has recalled an incident which saw him break the nose of Diego Costa in Chelsea training. This is where I am very, very proud of the owner Roman Abramovich because of the trust he had in me and the willingness to listen to me and give the academy time.

Speaking on why he decided to choose England ahead of Nigeria and Canada, the 21-year-old said he would have represented either Nigeria or Canada had they extended an invitation to him before the Three Lions did.

Leaders gather for potentially pivotal English debate

Tammy Abraham is looking to fully commit to England, with the Chelsea striker eager to become a regular in the Three Lions fold and bring a debate regarding his global allegiance to a close.

Southgate has said it would not be "ethically right" to award caps to players so they can not play for another country.

"My dream was always to play for England", he said.

Tomori is one of several academy graduates to have been given opportunity at first-team level at Chelsea this season following Chelsea's transfer ban.

He helped the Rams reach the Championship play-off final and was named Derby's player of the season. "He believed in it and in me, and I can't thank him enough for that".

"Yeah, I remember. I was actually still in school and I didn't actually know I had done it in training", said Tomori, as per The Mirror. "So I'll go there, learn off him and hopefully be like him". I've been working hard, listening to people, trying to improve myself and it's going well.
