Lee Johnson says he always knew Tammy Abraham would be called up for the England national team, but even he is surprised at the speed at which it has arrived.
The Chelsea striker, who scored 26 goals last season for City, has been named in Gareth Southgate’s latest squad for international friendly matches against Germany and Brazil.
Now on loan at Swansea City in the Premier League, Abraham has scored four times in the top tier, prompting England to come calling.
Johnson told BCTV: “I’m delighted for him. It will be a very proud moment for him and his family, along with anyone who has had the honour of coaching him.
“It was inevitable. I knew it would come, I just didn’t know it would come this early.
“I know he had the choice between playing for England or Nigeria. He’s chosen England and has now been rewarded for his good form.
“I hope that he has a part in at least one of the two games and knowing him, he’d probably go and score on his debut.”
City have the likes of Bailey Wright, Callum O’Dowda and Hordur Magnusson on international duty after tomorrow’s match with Cardiff City.
Johnson added: “Bailey and Callum have got big, big games to be involved in and we’re keeping our fingers crossed for them as they look to book a place at the World Cup next summer.
“We’ll also be keeping our fingers crossed that they come back fit and well because we don’t want any more injuries.”
