Tammy Abraham has rued Swansea City’s 1-0 loss to Newcastle United at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday evening.
On 60 minutes, Abraham went close to adding to his two-goal tally for the Swans but Jamaal Lascelles made a goal-saving block to deny the Chelsea loanee, who had rounded goalkeeper Robert Elliot.
”I had a great chance, I went around the keeper – I thought I had scored, but it was cleared off the line and from there Jamaal went on to get the winning goal, which was disappointing for us,” Abraham told Swansea City’s official website.
”We had enough chances to kill the game. You need chances like that to go in, but it was not our day today.
”These games are won and lost on fine margins. We have to keep our heads up. We needed this win to continue a good start to the season but now we refocus for our match against Tottenham.”
The 19-year-old Abraham, who is an England U21 international, is on the radar of the Nigeria Football Federation ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
