Tammy Abraham can cope with England demands, says Swansea's Clement

Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan at Crystal Palace has also received his first full call-up

Abraham can not be cap-tied to his country of birth until he makes an appearance for the Three Lions in next summer's football festival in Russian Federation, as the games against Brazil and Germany are friendly games.

He joined Swansea City this year on loan from Chelsea during the summer transfer window and is the Swans' top scorer so far this season, with four goals and one assist in 10 Premier League appearances.

Chelsea forward Abraham now on loan at Swansea made the cut after scoring four Premier League goals this season, including a brace in the Swans' 2-0 win against Huddersfield on October 14.

But efforts to make him agree to play with the Super Eagles by the Nigeria Football Federation proved abortive.

Joe Gomez has enjoyed regular action for Liverpool in both the league and Champions League and has been rewarded for a string of solid performances with his first full global call-up.

Liverpool duo Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been left out along with Manchester United's Chris Smalling.

Tammy Abraham, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Joe Gomez have earned their first call-ups for the England senior side. Also back in is Danny Rose, bringing Spurs' total up to six members of the squad.

Having already secured their qualification to the World Cup finals in Russian Federation next year, the Three Lions are scheduled to face Brazil and Germany in friendly fixtures over the upcoming worldwide break.

"I don't know how you can get in an England squad without getting in an Arsenal team". Both matches take place at Wembley Stadium.
