Swansea and England youth prodigy, Tammy Abraham wants the opportunity to prove himself at international level after being handed his first senior England call-up for the friendlies against Germany and Brazil.
Abraham was drafted into the squad alongside Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Joe Gomez, with the trio all fledgling Premier League players who have been fast-tracked into the England set-up for the fixtures at Wembley.
Abraham has scored five times in 14 appearances while on loan at Swansea from Chelsea this season and now hopes he can show enough to Gareth Southgate in training to hand him his England bow against either Germany on Friday or Brazil next Tuesday.
The 20-year-old striker said that it would be a massive achievement and a confidence boost for him if he gets to feature in any of the friendlies, stressing that it shows that he on the right direction.
The decision of Abraham to pitch his tenth with the Three Lions is bad news for Nigerians who want the 20-year-old to play for the Super Eagles.
“I feel like I’m ready, but it won’t be easy. I just have to keep proving to the manager in training and showing why he picked me and just keep working as hard as I can.
“I just want to go out there, enjoy myself and show to the world what I’m truly made of,” Abraham said.
