Former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham makes hilarious revelation after England call up

Ex-Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has a new confidence about him after what he said on arrival for national duty with England.

Abraham, 24, has contributed an impressive six-goal contributions in 10 appearances so far this season under Jose Mourinho at AS Roma as his £40million transfer seemingly looks an astute move from the Gillarossi and more importantly for himself.

And his reward for the increase of form since moving abroad has been a shock England call up for the upcoming World Cup qualifying games against Andorra and Hungary.

It is being reported by The Athletic that this sudden decision from =Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate isn’t at expense of anyone who was called up for the October international break.

The striker currently has six full England caps, scoring only one goal so far in the 7-0 thrashing of Montenegro in Euro 2020 qualifying, in November 2019.

Abraham will be joining his close friends from Cobham during this international period in the form of Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell and Fikayo Tomori.

Abraham and Tomori were sold for a combined £65million by Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia and were replaced like for like in Thomas Tuchel’s squad roster by £97.5m club-record signing Romelu Lukaku and fellow academy star Trevoh Chalobah.

Before the striker was sold to Roma, Tuchel admitted that he lacked ‘trust’ in the tall English number 9 and that itself was one of the main reasons as to why the west Londoners were forced to cash in.

“I will not comment on the actual situations – how far this is and if it’s true and not true,” the German said back in August.

“He was clearly not happy with the last half a year and maybe he has reason also not to be happy and maybe it was also my fault not to push him, not to trust him on the same level I maybe trusted other players.

“I can absolutely understand that he wants more minutes. So the decision will be ‘how do we plan, what are Tammy’s plans, does he fight his way back into the team from the position where he ended last season or does he want to change club to have the chance of being a regular starter?'”

Now that the past is the past for the tall talisman, he will only be looking forward to the future with Roma and England with a return to Stamford Bridge a possibility in the future if he goes off and follows Lukaku’s career route.

His newfound confidence was ever-present in the England National Team’s most recent player arrivals video for the October internationals.

Abraham was filmed walking into the building at St Georges’ Park seeing an Xbox and making a joke at the expense of his friends who he reckons are weaker than him when it comes to a certain game known to most football fans- FIFA 22.

He jokingly reckons: “Some people are going to lose.”

The 24-year-old then followed up his initial opinion when asked about who he’s going to face at the new game: “Whoever wants to play me.

“I back myself to be the best, so hopefully you don’t see me crying tonight.”
