Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori to receive England call-ups
Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori’s fine starts to the season with Chelsea will see them called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad, when it’s announced later this afternoon, Sky Sports News understands.
It caps an eye-catching start to the season for Abraham – he scored his first Champions League goal on Wednesday on his 22nd birthday and sits just behind Sergio Aguero in the Premier League scoring charts – with seven goals in as many games.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old Tomori is set to step up from the U21s into England’s senior squad for the first time when it is announced at 2pm.
The defender has established himself as Frank Lampard’s first choice centre-back, and Southgate and assistant Steve Holland – a former Chelsea coach – have been impressed by the maturity of his performances at the top level.
