Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham continued his good form this season after he came off the substitutes’ bench to score his first goal for the Three Lions of England.

The Nigerian-born attacker had snubbed the Super Eagles of Nigeria to represent England competitively last month and things got better for him following his first England goal on his fourth appearance.

Tammy Abraham was one of the goalscorers as England thrashed Montenegro 7-0 at home to book their spot in the 2020 European Championships.

He came on as a second-half substitute for team captain and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane before netting the last goal of the Group A game.

Harry Kane scored three goals to take his tally to 11 goals at the top of the goalscoring charts alongside Eran Zahavi of Israel.

England maintain top spot in Group A ahead of Czech Republic though both teams are through to Euro 2020.

A point in their away game at Kosovo will guarantee England top spot.

Tammy Abraham has been in very good form for Chelsea who have won their last six games in the Premier League and are up to third spot on the league table.

He has scored 11 goals in all competitions including 10 Premier League games.
