Tammy Abraham Set For England Debut Vs Germany

Swansea striker Tammy Abraham is expected to be handed his senior England debut on Friday night as the Three Lions face Germany in a friendly.

Abraham, on loan from Chelsea, has played for England at youth levels but was approached to player for Nigeria, where his father hails from.

The youngster has been in decent form for

The 20-year-old met with Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick, who has known his father for years, but Abraham turned down the chance to play for the Super Eagles.

According to reports in England, Abraham is in line to start for the Three Lions against their arch-rivals Germany at Wembley the same night the Super Eagles are facing Algeria in an inconsequential World Cup qualifier.

 Nigeria have already qualified for Russia 2018.

England coach Gareth Southgate is also expected to give debut senior caps to Crystal Palace midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, another player on loan from Chelsea, and Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

    Congrats to him but he will soon know the diffrence between Cow-Skin and Real-Meat. If Ballotelli can be bood by Italians, Dessaily thrown a Banana by French,Agbolahan,John-Fash e.t.c used and dumped by England after just 2/3 matches without achieving any major career breakthrough,how much more this flash in a Pan that will not even bench Iheanacho in S/Eagles not to talk of other strikers in same position! Pls get him a permanent sit on England bench and give him sit belt because after today’s iniciation,its over for him pls. Just say bye to W/Cup and other major trophies bro.

      He won’t even make it to the England bench after this game. He is only being given this opportunity so that he won’t be eligible to play for Nigeria again. Foolish boy Tammy.

        Tammy was only given chance to play because the key players in England squad are injured. After this game, he will not even smell call up again to the Three Lions talkless of being on the bench. He has missed it. They will not let him rise. He should have consulted former players who have choose to play for England and what they become thereafter. Don’t mind him, he will soon realise his error but by the time he discover his error, it would have been too late to switch. Come to think of it, he cannot displace any player on the Eagles line up. That boy is not focus and not serious about his career at all. We will beat the same England at the World Cup. If he want to bet, he can contact me. Mcheeeewwwwww.

  • I sincerely hope and pray that his case will not end up like that of Eniola Aluko..

    • Hahahaha
      Good for friendlies and never considered for tournaments. I don’t see him in Russia 2018 with the likes of Kane, RASHFORD, and co…

      You said training material, if he plays tonight, he will not get another call up once all key players are fit to resume their roles in the England squad.

  • We have better and skilful players here in Nigeria and beyond

  • He should learn from AGBOLAHOR and NEDUM ONUHA
