​Chelsea manager Lampard not advising Abraham on international decision

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard does not want to get involved in the national team conundrum facing Tammy Abraham.

There is speculation that Abraham will have a choice of representing England and Nigeria on the international stage.

While he is likely to pick England, there is a possibility he will choose the easier path to a starting spot with Nigeria.

When he was asked about the situation by reporters after his side's 5-2 win over Wolves in the Premier League, Lampard said: "No. No, that's not my choice.

"I know Tammy's been in England squads before and I'm not surprised Nigeria would want him, but that's a question for him I suppose."
