Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has now fully committed his international future to England after making his competitive debut for England against Czech Republic on Friday night.

Abraham previously had two caps for England but both games were friendlies which meant he could switch allegiance with Nigeria desperately trying to persuade him to play for them.

Abraham came on for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice with just two minutes to the end of regulation time.

It wasn’t a competitive debut he would want to remember for too long as he played for just six minutes and couldn’t stop England from tasting defeat for the first time in the qualifiers after they were beaten 2-1 by the Czech Republic.

Gareth Southgate’s men were awarded an early penalty which Harry Kane converted to give England the lead.

However, the scores were back level just four minutes later when defender Jakub Brabec headed in a corner. Zdenek Ondrasek then popped up to score the winning goal on his international debut in the 85th minute.
