Chelsea striker Abraham: The 2 current stars I played with in Greenwich

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has revealed he played in the same junior team as two current Championship stars.

Abraham has recalled before joining Chelsea that he played with a junior Greenwich team.

He told chelseafc.com: "I joined Chelsea at the age of nearly seven.

"I was at a local team in Greenwich, it was my mum's friend's team and I just went there, trained on a couple of days and they accepted me.

"We started winning a lot of tournaments. There was me, Ovie Ejaria (currently at Reading on-loan from Liverpool) and Ebere Eze (currently at QPR) so there were a few of us there and it was good."
