Why I chose England over Nigeria - Tomori

Chelsea's Fikayo Tomori celebrates scoring at Wolves with teammate Tammy Abraham

So, when England came calling, it was hard to say no.

The Three Lions travel to the Czech Republic and Bulgaria for back-to-back Euro 2020 qualifiers this weekend.

England are set to take on the Czech Republic on Friday and Bulgaria on Monday, with the match against the latter taking place in a partially-closed stadium - a legacy of racist chants made by Bulgarian fans during matches against the Czech Republic and Kosovo in June.

England stars have agreed to walk off the pitch and abandon the game should they receive racist abuse from the stands in their upcoming internationals.

The first step is for the referee to be made aware of any racism and halt the game for an announcement to be made.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Tammy Abraham has openly confessed that his dream has always been to represent England at topflight level.

"Yes, we've had meetings, several meetings about it since we've arrived yesterday", he said.

"We've touched base on how to deal with the situation", said the Chelsea forward. I spoke to my family and people that I care about it and that's the decision I came to.

"It's a team thing". As defenders, as a team and as a unit we know where to improve and where to work on.

"I was playing on loan at Kettering and Tamworth, and I said I will play for England one day", said Wilson.

"We did speak about that". "Harry Kane did ask the question about instead of going through the three steps, if we decide that we want to stop the game - no matter what the score is - if we're not happy with it, as a team we'll decide whether or not to stay on the pitch".

The Bulgarian Football Union was fined €40,000 by Uefa for "discriminatory" chanting and lighting and throwing of fireworks.

'If we want to be regarded as one of the best teams in Europe and go far in the Euros, and try and win the competition, our clean sheets and goals conceded must be fewer, ' Liverpool full-back Alexander-Arnold admitted. I had certain people and certain things that I had to consider.

"[The meeting] was just about, if it does happen, which unfortunately it does sometimes, what we need to do and what the protocol is", Abraham's Chelsea teammate and new squad member Fikayo Tomori said. "Some games you would be playing bad and I'd think, "no it's never going to happen", but you have to keep that belief there and here I am".
