Tammy Abraham Happy With England Call-up
While many feel he is on the verge of a costly mistake as far as his international career is concerned, towering goal poacher, Tammy Abraham feels otherwise.
The Chelsea-owned player, who is being courted to play for the Super Eagles, says he is delighted to get his maiden call-up to the England national team, the Three Lions.
England on Thursday called up the uncapped Nigerian-born Abraham, Joe Gomez and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, for their friendly matches against Germany and Brazil at Wembley this month.
Words can’t describe the feeling but truly blessed and honoured to be called up to @England seniors ????????thanks for all the messages ??— Tammy abraham (@tammyabraham) November 2, 2017
It was previously reported that Abraham was interested in playing for Nigeria after a meeting with the NFF President, Amaju Pinnick but the striker, who is presently on loan at Swansea, has refuted those claims.
The Three Lions will play World Cup holders, Germany on November 10 and Brazil four days later.
