How Frank Lampard broke the news of an England call-up to Tammy and Fikayo

Tammy Abraham has revealed how Frank Lampard broke the news that the Chelsea striker, and team-mates Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount, had been called up to the England squad.

The Blues trio have all played a big part in Chelsea's opening matches of the 2019-20 campaign despite all three having been out on loan last season.

Mount and Tomori were both with Lampard at Derby County, while Abraham was also playing Championship football as he helped Aston Villa win promotion to the Premier League.

Now starring for the west London club, Abraham has explained how Lampard told them all together after the Champions League win over Lille that they had been called up by Gareth Southgate.

He told FATV: "It was after the Lille game. He didn't want to tell us before but I think he knew before the game.

"We'd just won, we're buzzing and the gaffer comes and grabs me, Fikayo and Mason and whispers 'you're all in the England squad'. We looked at each other and were buzzing. We hugged each other and made a Snapchat video
