Strike star Tammy Abraham vows to grab England chance

Chelsea starlet Tammy Abraham is determined to prove himself at international level after being handed his first senior England call-up.

Abraham was drafted into the squad for the friendly games against Germany and Brazil, alongside Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Joe Gomez, with the trio all fledgling Premier League players who have been fast-tracked into the England set-up for the fixtures at Wembley.

Abraham has scored five times in 14 appearances while on loan at Swansea this season and now hopes he can show enough to Gareth Southgate in training to hand him his England bow against either Germany on Friday or Brazil next Tuesday.

The 20-year-old striker told reporters: "It would be a massive achievement for me and a big confidence boost as well, it would show that I'm going in the right direction. If I do get my opportunity I'd like to grab it as much as I can.

"I feel like I'm ready but it won't be easy. I just have to keep proving to the manager in training and showing why he picked me and just keep working as hard as I can.

"I just want to go out there, enjoy myself and show to the world what I'm truly made of."

Abraham making the step up to the England senior squad can only be a good thing for Chelsea, who have very high hopes for the youngster.
