The 2017-18 football season is closing to its conclusion and the players are gearing up for the upcoming World Cup competition – world’s biggest football event that is going to take place in Russia.
Tammy Abraham, the Swansea City striker currently on loan from Chelsea, is no different either who is desperate to have a ticket for the ultimate showdown and vowed to work hard in last few games to receive a call-up in Gareth Southgate’s England squad. The Three Lion star represented his nation in several youth ranks before making his senior debut against Germany in an international friendly back in November. He later featured against Brazil as a reward of his early form at Swansea but is dropped to the U21s following a barren run in later months. The clock is ticking but the 20-year-old is still dreaming of his World Cup selection.
“I have to finish strong, look to the World Cup squad this summer and then focus on Chelsea. My aim is to go back and do well with Chelsea.
Abraham stated in a recent interview as he eyes the World Cup to earn a regular slot in the Chelsea squad. He notched 23 league goals in the Championship last season with Bristol City but only managed to bag 4 this term for the Swans in 24 outings. The Chelsea academy graduate, nevertheless, is upbeat about his future and dreams of leading the line for the Blues whom he joined as a six-year-old back in 2004.
“I like to believe Chelsea is where I will go through and do well. I have been there since I was six years old. My dream is to break into the first team.”
Abraham has not scored a league goal since October and neither been his best since returning from an injury. But he is determined to impress for the England U21s and taking inspiration from Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero to live the dreams.
“Look at the top strikers like Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero. They are ruthless and every time they get a shot people think they are going to score. That is what I have to put into my game. It won’t just fall for me, I have to make it happen.”
