Drogba sends message to Tammy Abraham after his first England goal

After the striker scored his first goal for England on Thursday, Chelsea legend Didier Drogba sent a class message to Tammy Abraham.

Abraham continued his scintillating season start by scoring the seventh in England’s 7-0 Wembley Montenegro mauling.

The 22-year-old scored 12 goals in 20 appearances for club and country this term and established himself under Frank Lampard as a first-choice striker.

Drogba knows all too well what it’s like to bear a club like Chelsea’s goal scoring load, and after his maiden effort for the Three Lions, he was quick to praise Abraham.

Commenting on congratulating Abraham under Chelsea’s message, Drogba wrote: Waaw!!! So proud of you, Tammy Abraham!!! Congrats son’.

Abraham is vying for a starting berth with Harry Kane and on Thursday the England striker took his tally with a hat trick for his country to 31.

However, with Jamie Vardy in retirement, Abraham is now arguably the central striker of second choice, and Gareth Southgate will be bolstered by his bench impact.

Lampard will hope that after the international break, Abraham will be able to continue his hot streak when Chelsea travels to Manchester City champions at the Etihad.
