Swansea City striker Tammy Abraham has received a call up from England boss Gareth Southgate for their forthcoming international friendly matches against Germany and Brazil.

Abraham, who is on loan from Chelsea, earns his first senior call-up for the Three Lions after an impressive start to life at the Liberty.

The 20-year-old has scored five goals in 13 appearances under Paul Clement, with Abraham scoring his first Premier League goal in the 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace in August.

After helping England Under-21s reach the European Championship semi-finals this summer, Abraham now hopes to become only the second player, after Jonjo Selvey, to represent England at senior level while on the Swans' books.

England face Germany at Wembley on Friday, November 10 (8pm) before hosting Brazil on Tuesday, November 14 (8pm).
