Opinion: How Tammy Abraham Has Proven Thomas Tuchel Wrong With England Call-Up

Tammy Abraham is one of the players that fans in the world are praising and talking about. The young striker has impressed at his new club despite being a newcomer to the Italian league. So far, he has netted four goals in nine of the matches he has played for his team.

His performance has surprised many fans as it can be recalled that the striker failed to make it at Chelsea, where his career began. While at the London club, Abraham was unable to play frequently for the team as the current manager Thomas Tuchel preferred using a false 9 strategy.

Even as the preferred false 9 players were not scoring many goals and there was an emptiness in the striking position last season, Tuchel still did not see Abraham as an option. The tough situation appears to be what forced Abraham to join José Mourinho's side in Italy when the opportunity came knocking.

However, the player appears to be proving his former coach wrong as he is having a blistering spell at AS Roma. His fine statistics have also earned him a place in the English national team, as according to Metro Uk, the forward has received a call-up to play in the upcoming World Cup qualifying matches.

To say more about the England call-up, Abraham has more goals than Chelsea's current striker. According to Mourinho, he contributes a lot in matches even when he is not fortunate to score. The player has worked hard to become a striker that an entire football club can rely upon in a short period.

The call-up shows that he can also be trusted with the striking duties of a big national team like England's. With these, it is fair to say that Abraham has proven to Tuchel that he was wrong for not including him in his plans, or at least giving him a chance to prove himself.
