Tammy Abraham injury doubt for Roma's clash with Juventus after spraining ankle on England duty

TAMMY ABRAHAM is an injury doubt for Roma's game against Juventus after spraining his ankle on England duty.

The former Chelsea striker, 24, replaced Harry Kane for the final 15 minutes of the 1-1 draw with Hungary.

But he was forced off in the dying moments of the World Cup qualifier following a knock, with Ollie Watkins taking his place.

According to CalcioMercato, Abraham suffered a sprained ankle and could be ruled of for a couple of weeks.

Currently fourth in Serie A and already six points behind league-leaders Napoli, Roma take on Juventus on Sunday in a massive clash in the race for European places.

Jose Mourinho's side then face Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League before taking on Napoli just days later, with league showdowns against Cagliari and AC Milan still to come this month alone.

Abraham is set to go for scans in Rome to assess the damage on Wednesday.

However, the England ace may be forced to wait a day if the swelling is too much.


His absence will undoubtedly frustrate Mourinho, with the striker in red-hot form this season.

Abraham has scored four goals in ten games for his club, while also getting on the scoresheet during England's 5-0 rout of Andorra.

The former Stamford Bridge star was given the nod to start that game and eventually found the net after poking home a pinpoint Jadon Sancho cross.
