With a slow start to the campaign Harry Kane has many strikers breathing down his neck looking to take his place in England starting line-up, none more so than Chelsea’s standout goalscorer Tammy Abraham.
After just 12 matches for his boyhood club, the 22-year-old has scored 10 goals in only 12 games for Chelsea, one goal behind the Premier League’s current top goalscorer Jamie Vardy. Per BBC Sport, analyst Garth Crooks has even compared the Englishman to Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.
With such an exciting start to the season, many fans have been asking for Abraham not only to be called up to the England squad but to have him start over current captain Kane.
Much like his team Spurs, Kane has struggled in front of goal this campaign, with the star striker only setting in 6 goals in 11 league fixtures.
Notwithstanding some fans clamouring for a change in the England front line, in a recent press conference, Abraham’s head coach Frank Lampard told BBC Sport that his young frontman should admire Kane as he “is an incredible player. What he’s done in recent years and his career is amazing, so Tammy needs to look up to that.”
Although Abraham has managed to perform well over a 12-game stretch, Kane has been one of the most consistent strikers in the world for the past five years. Therefore Tammy will to have an extraordinary season if he wants to be regularly starting for England anytime soon.
