Three Lions of England manager Gareth Southgate has reacted to the inclusion of Chelsea duo Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori in his latest squad ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Czech Republic.
England will face Bulgaria on October 11 before facing Czech Republic three days later and the aforementioned Chelsea players have been named as part of a 25-man squad for the games.
The two games are away from home for Gareth Southgate and his England players.
He spoke to reporters on Thursday about the selection of the Chelsea duo of Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori.
According to him, the two players have always been part of the England setup having previously represented the youth teams.
He went on to say that the two players are in his team on merit before adding that they are not guaranteed playing time in the upcoming games for his team despite the fact that they are still eligible to play for other countries.
Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori have been a key part of the recent successes recorded by Chelsea under manager Frank Lampard in the past few weeks.
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is the second topscorer in the league with seven goals alongside Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and behind leading goalscorer Sergio Aguero of Manchester City.
