Tammy Abraham And Fikayo Tomori Arrive England Camp 

Bernard Femi

Frank Lampard's boys, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, have been sighted in the England camp.

The football stars, who have impressed the club and England football fans, arrived St George’s camp ahead of Euro 2020 qualifier against host, Czech Republic.

Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham, has scored eight goals since the beginning of the season, making it the best form he has kept so far, scoring the same number of goals as Manchester City’s striker, Aguero.

Abraham will be making his second call up under the management of South Gate, while Fikayo Tomori who has been impressive as Chelsea’s defender since the beginning of the season will be making his first debut for the England national team.

Tomori and Abraham were recently invited by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to play for the country. The duo dumped Nigeria to represent England, and Tomori revealed in a statement thus: “Nigeria is important as well as England but I could not ignore England’s call up.”

Nigerians wish the Chelsea duo had opted to play for the country, but unfortunately, they decided not to yield to the call even as former England star footballer, John Fashanu, tried to persuade them.

The duo will also train with Chelsea's midfielders, Mason Mount and Ross Berkley. They were happy to hear the announcement of being called up to play for England.

Meanwhile, Chelsea coach, Frank Lampard, advised the duo and other Chelsea players representing England that if complacency kicks in, they will all suffer from it.

"I am pleased they smile, they need to take this now, something to add to their armoury and say, ‘Okay I am an England player, I am in the England squad. I need to show even more, game in and game out for us’," Lampard stated.
