Chelsea stars Tammy Abraham has scored his first senior goal for England during their 7-0 win over Montenegro.

The striker made it 12 goals in all competitions for the season.

“I’ve always believed in myself to score goals,” Tammy explained. “There’s still a lot in my game I need to develop but I can’t complain. It’s going well.

“It’s just about maintaining it, not just for the rest of the season but for many years, hopefully. I’m just going into every game, believe in myself, block everything out and focus. There’s going to be a lot of praise, you just have to stay focused, ignore some bits and use some bits to lift my confidence. That’s what you need as a player to get to the top level. To always believe, even in tough times.”

Abraham truly believes that the sky is the limit and is not ruling out lifting silverware this summer, as he was asked following his performance last night.

“Hopefully, hopefully, I don’t want to jinx myself but I believe so [England can win a trophy],” added the striker. “My dream? Probably being at the Euros, winning it, finishing in the top four or even the top two in the Premier League with Chelsea. Just believing! The sky really is the limit.”

Harry Kane had already notched a hat-trick before he was replaced by Abraham just before the hour mark, and Tammy paid tribute to the Tottenham striker.

“It’s always been a dream for me to be on the same pitch as him,” Tammy revealed. “Every day, I watch him and learn off him. To be on the same pitch with him, training with him every day, watching learning off him, it’s always nice to have that type of player to learn from. It’s for me to add to my game. You saw his great finishing, and it’s the same even in training when he’s practising, you can see his professionalism. He wants to be the best, to have someone like that to look up to is a dream.”
