ABSTRACT
THE FA are concerned Nigeria are trying to poach a number of their young stars as they look to wrap up World Cup qualification. Tammy Abraham was the subject of speculation last month that he had chosen to switch allegiances to Nigeria, which the Chelsea striker denied. However, Abraham, who is on loan at Swansea, remains a player Nigeria want in their squad to go to Russia — as are Everton's Ademola Lookman and Liverpool's Sheyi Ojo, who helped England win the Under 20 World Cup earlier this year. So far, all those players have committed to England but manager Aidy Boothroyd, whose side face Scotland in a Euro 2019 qualifier in Middlesbrough tonight, has explained he cannot offer guaranteed starting spots. Boothroyd said: 'Nigeria are trying to get as many players as they can and you can't blame them because we've got some good players. Sheyi Ojo is another. It's a hard one because I can't guarantee they are going to play, as the group is so good.
