Abraham Disappointed With Chelsea Draw Despite Bagging Two Goals

Abraham Disappointed With Chelsea Draw Despite Bagging Two Goals

Chelsea forward, Tammy Abraham was left emotionally frustrated despite scoring twice in Chelsea’s 2-2 against Sheffield United, Completesports.com reports.

The youngster bagged a brace against Norwich earlier in The Blues’ new campaign, and stamped his scoring potential yet again with a first half brace against Sheffield United in Saturday’s Premier League tie.

But rather than hold his head high amidst glowing hopes over his extraordinary performance, Tammy feels the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge was frustrating.

The brace was his first time scoring at Stamford Bridge but it turned out to be a mixed emotions as the goals did not translate to three points.

“We are all disappointed with this draw,” Tammy told Chelsea official website.

“We’re Chelsea and no team should be able to come here and play better than us and Sheffield United were better than us in the second half.

“It wasn’t good enough from all of us. I take responsibility as well being one of the players out there.”

Abraham added: ” We were gifted two goals in the first half and from there we should have killed the game off, come out in the second half and upset the opposition.

“We know Sheffield United will always fight till the end.

“We should have frustrated them, but them scoring an early goal in the second half didn’t help. From there, we had to relax, calm everything down, and go out there and win the game.

“It just wasn’t our day. We have to go on the international break now and calm back down with all our heads focussed and screwed on. We need to get these wins,” Tammy summed up.

  • Despite ur goal scoring exploit Southgate consider u not good enough for England qualifier not even a Tournament will he considier u.

     
  • This guy is about #7 in ranking for Striker position for the 3 lions.
    He has a long wait to get a chance.
    They will play him in friendlies or even 10 mins in a qualifier game just to condemn him to a life of misery like Ugo Ehiogu,John Fashinu etc.
    He is basking in ignorance. Racism dies hard.

    That said, the SE is not even a cake walk for him.
    Qe have the okerekes,Osimhen, etc that are as good if mot better.
    He lost hus chance to have gone to a FIFA WC in Russia, even though am not sure Rhor would have played him anyway.

    • @CJ

      Baffles me how some people have warped sense of thinking. This is a guy who would have enjoyed the benefits of 2 worlds: British citizenship and a sports icon for Nigeria. Whoever asked him to tear his British passport in order to play for Nigeria? Any right-thinking person would grab the opportunity to play for the SE for five (5) minutes. His popularity would soar by at least 50 million.

      I wish Rohr could try me for 3 minutes as a defender, but in a low-profile friendly!!!

       
  • Hi Achi,

    Thanks for your contribution bro which I read with much interest.

    I guess Tammy Abraham has the mind to play more for England but, like you said, it would have been a win-win for him to have elected to play for Nigeria because it can be argued that he has more prospects for international football playing time (and great fan appreciations) for Nigeria compared to England.

    Just look at the likes of Iwobi, Ebuehi, Balogun and Ekong who all have World Cup exposure earlier than they would have had playing for other countries (in the case of Balogun : he would never have played any international football had he snubbed Nigeria).

    Do we still need Abraham?

    At this precise moment, I think we are just fine. The firepower we have up front is immense.

    Just take a look at Iwobi’s combustible header last weekend which now adds another explosive dimension to his game.

    Should the ex-Arsenal man continue that way, then he will accumulate enough skills to be considered for Support Striker roles further making us lethal in the 18 yard box.

    Then, when it comes to arrow-heads, the likes of Osimhen can hold his own with other ‘struggling’ strikers like Isaac Success and Kelechi Iheanacho working hard to regain the sort of form that brought them to prominence.

    Even once-upon-a-time strikers like Olanrewaju Kayode and hopefuls like Sadiq Umar are now playing regularly and banging in goals (Sadiq scored last weekend while Kayode scored a brace the other weekend).

    As we get deeper into the season, I am sure more of our strikers will get into the groove and will be banging in the goals like weapons of mass destruction.

    So, I don’t think we are ‘desperate’. If Abraham elects to play for us one day, fine, if not, I think we will be just fine without him (regardless of how many goals he scores for Chelsea).

     
  • For me, Abraham is gone. This is all because Pinnick was too quick to announce the progress then.
    These English Born players do get pressure from their club coaches and those ex-english players.
    The likes of Ojo, Lookman, Maja..even Aribo were only free to announce their readiness after leaving England. Tomori once declared for Naija only to deny it later. Even Lookman and Ojo once denied Nigeria. Good example was the case of Iorfa, who once trained with England senior Team only to be forgotten once he showed interest in playing for Nigeria. Abraham will honour the next England call up and that’s where it ends but good for us, he has 4 goals, Osimhen has 4 goals and still counting.
