Abraham Says Under-21 Opportunity Is Special

Tammy Abraham admits it will be a special moment if he makes his England Under-21 debut over the next few days.

The striker, who recently turned 19, has been fast-tracked to the Under-21 group after just one cap for the Under-20s.

Abraham, on loan at Ashton Gate for the season from Chelsea, could make his Under-21 bow in Kazakhstan tomorrow, or next Tuesday at Walsall’s Banks’s Stadium when England host Bosnia-Herzegovina.

“It would be a very special moment,” Abraham told bcfc.co.uk. “I’m going to give it my all with the England Under-21s and see what happens.

“It’s been a great time for me; I’m scoring goals for Bristol City, I’ve picked up the PFA Fans’ award and just had my 19th birthday.

“It’s an exciting time to be joining up with the Under-21s.”
Recalling the moment he found out about his elevation to the Under-21 setup, the young forward recalled: “I was just on the sofa and then it flashed up on Sky Sports News.

“My phone started going with lots of messages of support from friends and family. I’m very excited about it all.”

Abraham grabbed his 11th goal of the season as City won their fourth straight game on Saturday, a 2-1 success over Nottingham Forest.

He is the Sky Bet Championship’s top scorer with eight, one ahead of Newcastle United’s Dwight Gayle and Brentford’s Scott Hogan.
