Tammy Abraham credits ‘South London link up’ for England connection with Jadon Sancho

JADON SANCHO AND TAMMY ABRAHAM caused havoc in England’s 5-0 win over Andorra this week.

Sancho set up two goals in the game, and one of his assists was to Abraham who latched onto the Man United star’s cross to hit the back of the net.

Sancho enjoyed providing Abraham with the opportunity to score the most because he knows how hard life was for them growing up in the streets of South London.

While the pair were watching the game back on England’s YouTube channel, Sancho said: “For him [Abraham] to get a goal is always a good feeling for me because of our backgrounds.

“You know, it was tough back in the day so to do it on the main stage is always a honour.”

And Abraham thinks their tough past is the reason why they bond so well on the pitch, he added: “We just have that South London link up.”

Roma baller Abraham grew up in Camberwell, while Sancho was raised in Kennington.

And Sancho previously explained to Rio Ferdinand that if it wasn’t for the older guys on his estate in the borough, he wouldn’t even be playing football today.
