Tammy Abraham was a second half substitute in the Super Cup final clash against Liverpool, and the young forward had a good game against the Reds.
The first half ended 1-0 in favour of Chelsea courtesy of a 36th minute strike from Olivier Giroud, while Sadio Mane levelled the scores shortly after the restart.
Mane was on target in the 100th minute of the game as he tried to win the game for Liverpool in extra time, but Tammy Abraham won a penalty for the Blues five minutes afterwards which was duly converted by Jorginho.
Chelsea ended up losing the game on penalties with Abraham missing the fifth and decisive kick for the Blues.
After nine spot-kicks had been successfully scored, it was the 21-year-old Abraham who stepped up to play the 10th kick, and he played straight into Adrian’s feet.
Blues boss Frank Lampard consoled him after the game and admitted that it was the 21-year-old who opted to take the fifth kick. Lampard revealed the words of encouragement he had for Tammy Abraham after his penalty miss.
“I told him not to worry,” he said. “The fact that he’s confident and wants to step up to take the fifth penalty is pleasing to me. I’ve been there myself, anyone can miss a penalty, but what I want is the confidence of a young player to turn up and do that.
“It’s part and parcel of being a player at the top level, which is what Tammy now is. These moments come and we have to be supportive of him because that’s football.”
