Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham stirred a bit of controversy after attending a party with Chelsea teammate Ben Chilwell and Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

They were all filmed at Abaraham’s surprise 23rd birthday party at his London home on Saturday evening.

Abraham was unaware that friends and family had planned a surprise birthday party for him, as he clocked 23.

Meanwhile, the FA have released a statement regarding the situation.

The Football Association have told the three players to delay their arrival to join the England squad until the rule breach has been investigated more thoroughly, and they will also be required to take coronavirus tests before being permitted to join the Three Lions team.

“As a precaution to understand if there is any risk to the wider group, the arrival of Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho will be delayed,” explained the FA in a statement.

“This is to allow time to gather further information of a social gathering that all three players reportedly attended over the weekend.”

The incident will be treated differently from Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden case that saw both players removed from the England squad last international break. However, it’s yet to be seen if England boss Gareth Southgate will discipline them.
