Bukayo Saka delighted to see Tammy Abraham return to England with a goal after Chelsea exit

Abraham missed a spot at Euro 2020 after falling out of favor at Chelsea towards the end of last season.

He chose to move to Rome this summer and join former Blues boss Jose Mourinho in the Italian capital.

Abraham started the Serie A season well and got an England recall after being added to Gareth Southgate’s squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary.

The 24-year-old started against Andorra, his first selection in 11 months, and marked his comeback with a goal in the 5-0 victory.

Saka also scored in the comfortable Group I victory, but singled out Abraham when asked who else he was happy to have watched the game.

“I’m really happy for Tammy,” he told ITV Sport.

“He’s my boy. I’m really happy he scored his goal because he worked really hard, he was in really good shape in Italy so I’m really happy for him.

“It’s football and different challenges are going to come up and I think he has handled this one well (move to Rome) so far, I just wish him the best and I’m happy that he scored his goal.”

Saka scored the second goal of the night after Ben Chilwell’s opener, the Arsenal forward benefactor of a nice assist from Phil Foden before shooting in his third senior international goal.
