Abraham looked devastated as his team-mates crowded round to try and console him. “Thank goodness I was wrong, for Abraham (right, training this week with England) has always appealed to this former centre-forward for the unselfish way he leads the line. Not many cover as much ground as this hard-working character.”On top, his tremendous physique and speed across the turf make him ideal for the top flight. All Abraham required was a bit of self belief, which, in strikers, can only come from scoring goals. ” last_img
