Abraham Vows To Cement England Place

Abraham  Vows To Cement England Place

Tammy Abraham today vowed the time has come to establish himself as an Englandregular.

 

The 22-year-old joined up with Gareth Southgate’s squad at St George’s Park yesterday after scoring his ninth goal in 11 games for Chelsea as the Blues eased to a 4-1 win over Southampton.

 

Abraham’s call-up for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria comes almost two years after his only previous senior appearances in friendlies against Germany and Spain in November 2017.

 

Abraham lasted an hour of the first game and just 15 minutes of the second as two experimental Southgate sides earned successive goalless draws.

 

He was on loan at Swansea at the time but after a subsequent spell at Aston Villa last term – where he scored 25 goals in a promotion-winning season – Abraham believes is has matured to seize any opportunity given to him over the next seven days.

 

“Back then in 2017, it was all about me being young,” he told Standard Sport.

 

“It was a good experience, for me. So, to be going back now, I had my experiences out on loan, I’m back and now it’s time to stay here.

 

“For me, it’s a massive achievement [to be in the squad]. I’m clearly doing something right for my club to get attention from Gareth Southgate. It’s about going out there, helping the team as much as possible. And then coming back in and doing the same job for my team.”

 

Abraham remains eligible to play for Nigeria – the country of his father’s birth – having not played a competitive senior game for England in his career to date.

 

Abraham’s father is close friends with president of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, and manager Gernot Rohr had made little secret of his desire to convince the striker to switch allegiances.

 

Abraham insisted the subject had not come up during his initial discussions with Southgate, although in his mind that debate now appears to be settled once and for all.

 

“I haven’t spoken to him about that,” said Abraham. “I’m a player growing up in England, playing in the Premier League. My ambitions were always to play for England. Obviously it’s nice to be wanted by two nations, two nations that I love. But my main focus is England.”

    Giving us news about Abraham is more or less like giving us news about other non Nigerian players. Abraham is related to Nigeria and chose England over Nigeria,that’s his decision and whatever comes out of it is his business. When u haven’t even given us enough updates on our own players that are proud of putting on the green and white jersey, you’re here painting the whole of CSN with news of a non Nigerian.

    Can you even justify ur purspose of feeding people with the news of Tammy and Fikayo?

    I love CSN and pls don’t give ppl reasons to start disrespecting your reputation.

    CSN is beginning to loose the respect I have for them and very soon won’t even be a fan of the website the more they keep posting news about Tammy and Tomori on this page. For heaven crying out loud! We are done with this guys. Just spare us please and report news of Nigerian players and the national team! If you don’t have any but the only news you have is about Tammy and Tomori, just pack off!

    I agree that CSN should tone down the reporting of Tammy and Tomori, but no need for insults and curses. Wishing a journalist dead and for vulture to eat his dead body is unbecoming on this site. No need to allow our anger to becloud our sense of reason.
    As for Tammy and Tomori, na belle things. The decision they took is all about protecting their daily bread. Choosing Nigeria would negatively impact their Chelsea careers.
    Looking at it from another perspective, perhaps these boys choosing England is justified. England invested the time and money to develop their talents. England invested in facilities and infrastructure to develop grass roots football in their country. England invested in their league, to make it one of the best in the world. Why should Nigeria now come in to reap where they did not sow, just because the boys have Nigerian blood? Monkey don suffer, don work finish, baboon come balance yakata, wan chop? While our anger is understandable, the main point not to be missed is that if we invest in our leagues, infrastructure and grass roots like England did, we would not even be looking at Tammy and Tomori right now. Walking about aimlessly in Nigeria are talented footballers that are head and shoulders better than Tammy and Tomori. Our focus now should be on discovering and developing our local talents, not feeding from the left over crumbs that the English are willing to let us have.

    If this is true, there goes the Nigerian dream of having Tammy in their ranks. I insist, please stay with Osimhen, his commitment to Nigeria would never be in doubt.

    Though..so far the news involve Nigeria(Nigeria Vs England), Nigerian reporters will post so no need for causes plss But as for me, I’m waiting for our strikers performances against Brazil and Lille’s Second Leg against Chelsea. Wish him luck..it has happened before…welbeck (if not for injury) Survive it, Heskey too but we still dey gallant without am.
