Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has earned his first call-up to the England national team since featuring in friendlies against Germany and Spain in 2017.

Abraham has been in great form for Chelsea this season and has scored eight league goals in eight games, topping the chart with Sergio Aguero.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is currently England’s best forward, and Abraham has revealed that he isn’t going to battle with the Spurs striker but rather learn from him and has called him the greatest striker in the world.

Abraham said: “For me, he’s the greatest striker in the world. I would put him up there. I was talking to [Chelsea and England midfielder] 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.”
