Chelsea striker Abraham: I'm back in England squad to stay

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham says the time has come to establish himself as an England regular.

Abraham's call-up for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria comes almost two years after his only previous senior appearances in friendlies against Germany and Spain in November 2017.

“Back then in 2017, it was all about me being young," he told the London Evening Standard.

“It was a good experience, for me. So, to be going back now, I had my experiences out on loan, I'm back and now it's time to stay here.

“For me, it's a massive achievement [to be in the squad]. I'm clearly doing something right for my club to get attention from Gareth Southgate. It's about going out there, helping the team as much as possible. And then coming back in and doing the same job for my team."
