Nigeria target Ike Ugbo after failing to convince Tammy Abraham

Chelsea loanee Ike Ugbo has become the latest England youngster to be targeted by Nigeria.

The striker was born in Lewisham, south London and is eligible for Nigeria through his parents.

He has played for England at under-17 and under-20 level, helping the latter squad win the 2017 Toulon Tournament.

Nigeria were dealt a blow when Ugbo’s Stamford Bridge teammate Tammy Abraham was recalled to the England squad.

Ugbo scored his fifth goal for Roda JC in just eight appearances, six of which have been starts, for the Dutch side at Telstar on Friday night and Nigeria had officials at the game to watch him.
