Nigerian-born Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham made his competitive debut for the Three Lions of England during their Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic on Friday night but he could not prevent the 1966 world champions from suffering an unlikely defeat.

Hosts Czech Republic came from a goal down to beat England 2-1 in Group A.

Tammy Abraham came on as an 88th minute substitute for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice as England searched for an equaliser all to no avail.

It was his first competitive debut for the Three Lions of England.

Tammy Abraham had earlier made two appearances for England in a friendly game.

He has opted to represent England ahead of Nigeria.

The Chelsea striker was invited to the England national team setup on the back of his excellent form for his club.

Tammy Abraham is the joint leading goalscorer in the Premier League alongside Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero after netting eight goals in eight games.

He scored his eighth league goal of the season during the last Premier League game, a 4-1 win at Southampton.

Tammy Abraham has been the first choice central striker for Chelsea this season upon his return to the club from a successful loan spell in the summer.
