In-form Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is in line for an England call-up, it is understood.

Gareth Southgate will name his squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers away to the Czech Republic and Bulgaria at Wembley on Thursday.

The Three Lions boss named a 25-man group for last month's qualification double header, with Abraham a somewhat surprising omission given his fine start to the season at Chelsea.
