Chelsea duo Abraham and Tomori make England squad for Euro 2020 qualifiers

"There have been some hard decisions to make", he said.

Abraham, who has played in two senior worldwide friendlies to date and also remains eligible to represent Nigeria until he appears in a competitive fixture, has scored eight goals in all competition for Chelsea so far this season after being given a chance by Frank Lampard.

Tomori could become the second Calgary-born player to play for England.

"He is now the leading English goalscorer in the league". It's a good opportunity for us to take a closer look at him. "The season hasn't quite got going for him yet but we're expecting him to challenge in the coming months".

"I love both nations and for me I am clearly doing something right for Chelsea".

"We ask him many times to attack from wide or inside; Kyle Walker is a player who can do everything".

Other notable absentees are Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had been in the previous squad, and Kyle Walker, who has again been omitted.

"It is getting increasingly hard to pick a squad because the competition for places is more and more intense", Southgate added. But the opinion is of Gareth the manager, I'm not here to... he makes a decision to select and he decided the last two times.

"He is in good form so he'll be feeling confident about himself".

"He's scoring goals, he's scoring different types of goals and I think he's a threat". "It's not the case that he's playing poorly, we've just got really good competition in certain positions on the field".

Meanwhile, Everton midfielder Fabian Delph is recalled to the squad after a decent start to the season.
