AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham has been included in England’s latest squad by Gareth Southgate, bit no place for the Manchester United duo of Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho.
Tammy has discovered his best form over the last three months under Jose Mourinho in Roma.
He has scored 13 times in Serie A this term with nine of those coming in his last 12 matches. He has 20 goals across all competitions.
The Three Lions face Switzerland on 26 March and Ivory Coast on 29 March at Wembley.
Southgate reacting to why he dropped United’s forward, Sancho: “Because the other attacking players in the squad are slightly ahead of him at the moment. You can see the names – Foden, Sterling, Saka, Smith-Rowe, Grealish. If you look at the seasons they’ve had…
“Jadon, over the last few weeks his performances have without doubt improved at Manchester United but it’s an area of the field where we’ve got really big competition for places and at the moment we’ve got those guys slightly ahead, he said.
