Tammy Abraham will be representing the England U21 side in the European U21 Championships to be held in Poland from June 16th through the end of the month.
Let’s hope the England team do as well as the England U20 side in the World U20 Championships in South Korea when we beat Venezuela 1-0 in yesterday’s final.
Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman was England’s hero with a great second half performance when he made several excellent saves including saving a penalty with just 15 minutes to go.
Tammy Abraham – impressive on loan at Bristol City last season
Former Newcastle assistant manager Paul Simpson was the coach for England and Paul did extremely well to win the title for the very first time for England.
It’s only the second world title England have won to go with the FIFA World Cup we won back in 1966 when we hammered West Germany 4-2 after extra time with Geoff Hurst getting a hat-trick.
Newcastle are supposed to be close to signing Abraham on loan for the season, but in his interview in the Mail today he still seems completely undecided on what he’s doing next season:
“I’m not sure what I’m doing next season, if I’m coming back, going elsewhere on loan or staying at Chelsea.”
“I haven’t decided yet. You have to stay open and things may come at different times but I have to dream big and that’s what I’m going to be doing.”
“When I first came to Bristol, knowing it was Championship football, playing against experienced men, I knew it would be tough,”
“You’d be hard pressed to find players as tall as me at academy level (he’s 6ft 4ins tall) but that all changed when I came here.”
“I had to adapt some parts of my game. I feel like I’ve learnt so much. You see how much winning and losing games matters.”
“The club has given me my first chance to express myself and show what I can do. For a team to have that belief in me is amazing.”
“I wouldn’t say it’s been better than I’d been expected but scoring goals is always what I’ve loved doing. I had the right mindset as well.”
“It’s going to be tough but our aim (England U21 side) is to win and do the best we can. I wouldn’t say we’re under pressure but we are going to do our best.”
“I have confidence going into it but it’s never going to be easy. Hopefully I’ve done enough this season to get into the team. If I have, I’ll work as hard as I can.”
“It’s still my ambition to be at the top level, and be playing for England – especially like a competition like the World Cup.
“You know there are other players out there, but to be picked for England it shows you are doing something right.”
“It’s a good feeling.”
From what Tammy has said there he seems some way off making any decision on where he will be playing next season and he even seems to be waiting for potential new loan offers still coming in.
