Lampard Names Two Nigerians In Chelsea Pre-season Squad
Newly appointed Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has included two Nigeria-eligible players on the roster, for upcoming matches in Dublin, Republic of Ireland.
Young striker Ike Ugbo and central defender Fikayo Tomori were among the travelling party, that flew out on Friday.
Tammy Abraham has been omitted from the group, while promising youngsters Tariq Uwakwe and Faustino Anjorin were not been considered.
Of the five aforementioned players of Nigerian descent, only Abraham and Tomori have debuted for Chelsea’s first-team.
Ugbo returned for the second half of last season, after an unsuccessful loan spell at Scunthorpe United.
Chelsea will face Bohemians on Wednesday, before playing St Patrick’s Athletic next Saturday.
