Swansea City forward, Tammy Abraham could not hide joy after getting his maiden call-up to the Three Lions ahead of upcoming fixtures.
The red-hot forward who decided to switch allegiance from Nigeria in September has been in impressive form for Swansea this term – scoring four goals in 10 Premier League games.
In the Three Lions’ friendly matches against Germany and Brazil in November, the 20-year-old would hope to impress Gareth Southgate.
Delighted by the development, Abraham took to Twitter to express his enchantment with the invitation.
“Words can’t describe the feeling but truly blessed and honoured to be called up to England seniors. Thanks for all the messages,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Football Federation claimed to be much closer to securing the services of Chelsea FC of England forward Tammy Abraham, according to NFF President Amaju Pinnick.
Pinnick told the Federation’s website of his meeting with the tall striker, who has represented England at junior level but is eligible to wear the green-white-green for the Super Eagles had never played for the Three Lions.
“Tammy is like a son to me, because his father was my childhood friend. I believe he is a good prospect for the Super Eagles and the effort is well worth it.”
