Fikayo Tomori says he feels Nigerian despite representing England

Due to his upbringing, Fikayo Tomori claims that he feels Nigerian.

The 23-year-old player has only played once for England, which makes him eligible for the Super Eagles.

In a recent interview, he explained the meaning of his name:

“My name is Nigerian and it means, ‘God has filled me with joy, it is typical in Nigeria to give such names,”

“I feel very Nigerian, when I was little my parents spoke to me in the local language and I ate typical Nigerian food.”

If Fikayo decides to make a move to the Super Eagles, it may elevate the level of the team that is aiming to qualify to 2022 World Cup.
