Tammy Abraham wins a call-up to the England side after a strong showing under Jose Mourinho.
Tammy Abraham has been added to England’s World Cup qualifying roster.
After a stunning start to his Roma career, Tammy Abraham has been named to England’s team for this month’s World Cup qualifying matches against Andorra and Hungary. After joining in the Italian city this summer, the 24-year-old has started every Serie A game for his new team this season.
Abraham, who has six caps for his country, may make his first England appearance since coming off the bench against Iceland in the UEFA Nations League in November.
Abraham’s call-up appears to be an addition to England’s roster, since he is not expected to replace anyone from Gareth Southgate’s original group.
As a result, England will have a total of 24 players available to them as they attempt to continue their unbeaten start to their World Cup qualifying campaign.
Last month, England thrashed Hungary 4-0 at the Puskas Arena before defeating Andorra 4-0 three days later at Wembley.
Southgate’s side did lost their first points of the qualifiers, drawing 1-1 with Poland before the conclusion of the September international break.
In August, Abraham made a big-money move to Serie A after Roma paid £34 million to sign him from Chelsea.
After the appointment of Thomas Tuchel in January, the striker has slid down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
After managing the player during Jose Mourinho’s second tenure in charge of the west Londoners, Abraham reunited with the Portuguese manager in Italy.
And it’s proven to be a wise decision for the forward.
Following his arrival in Rome, Abraham was thrust into Mourinho’s starting lineup and provided two assists in a 3-1 victory over Fiorentina in August.
A week later, Abraham scored his first goal for Roma in a 4-0 victory over Salernitana.
Last month, he scored the game’s only goal as Roma upset Udinese, before teeing up Henrikh Mkhitaryan in Roma’s 2-0 win over Empoli at home on Sunday.
In addition, Abraham has scored in both of Roma’s Europa Conference League games this season.
