With England boss Gareth Southgate normally using a 4-3-3 formation, Tammy Abraham’s obvious obstacle to getting an opportunity in the England team comes in the form of Harry Kane.
Abraham has praised Kane as the greatest striker in the world and claims he is looking forward to training with the England skipper.
Abraham said: “For me, he’s the greatest striker in the world. I would put him up there.
“I was talking to Ross Barkley the other day and said I’ve never seen a finisher like him. Ross was saying him, Jermain Defoe, and all sorts.
“But when you look at Harry Kane, if he gets a chance in the box, nine times out of 10, it’s a goal. So I’ll go there learn off him and hopefully be like him.
“It would be amazing to play with him but even to train with him alone, getting to see him in training and all sorts – nick a few bits of his game and add them to mine.
“It isn’t really a battle. The one thing I love about the England team is that we are all a big family. They all play for each other, the team, the nation.”
“It’s massive for me and all the England lads too,” he added. “I’m a player who has grown up watching the likes of Harry Kane and to be going away with them, it’s an honour for me.
“Now it’s all about me staying in the team and doing well for my club, and hopefully I’ll be there in 2020.”
