Tammy Abraham has admitted he looks up to England striker Harry Kane as the Swansea loanee awaits his first cap for senior international football.
The striker was a surprise inclusion in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the upcoming friendlies against Germany and Brazil.
Abraham admits he would like to emulate Kane in the future.
He could replace him for the German showdown, considering Kane is struggling with a leg problem and might be unfit.
But Abraham has backed himself to fill the boots of Kane, should the opportunity present itself. He vows to seize his big chance and go on to earn a place in Southgate’s squad for next summer’s World Cup in Russia.
Abraham, who has scored four goals in 10 appearances since joining Swansea on-loan from Chelsea, said:
“It would be a massive achievement for me to face either Germany or Brazil.
“I feel like I am ready. But I know that it won’t be easy, and I just have to do the best I can.
“Harry is a player that I look up to. He does everything really well both on and off the pitch and is a role model really.
“But I’ve been given this opportunity, like others have been, and once you have it you have to take it.
“It shows I am doing something right, but it doesn’t mean that I will always be here. I just have to keep working hard and prove myself at this level”.
