  • Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan at Crystal Palace has also received his first full call-up

But despite Southgate naming a trio of uncapped players for England's worldwide friendlies against Germany and Brazil later this month, Dunk and March failed to be among them.

Another Chelsea loanee, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, has been gaining valuable experience under former Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace, and he too is called up for the first time.

Despite holding talks with officials representing the Super Eagles, Abraham has opted to pledge his global allegiance to England who has he played for at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 level.

Elsewhere, Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks and Manchester United defender Ashley Young have maintained their spot in Southgate's squad following impressive performances in the Premier League and Champions League for the respective clubs.

Clement who was an assistant manager at Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, expressed delight that Abraham finally got his first call-up.

"If I am asking club managers to be fearless and pick young players, then I think I have got to do the same".

Striker Abraham has scored four of Swansea's seven league goals this season.

However, he added: "There is no question about his ability, his football brain or personality, we just need to see him playing before he comes back in because unfortunately there has been a history of injuries". "He's played very well for Manchester United".

Chris Smalling and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have also lost their place in the squad despite being named on the 23-man list for the last round of fixtures.

"It's a pleasant surprise for us to see someone who we have brought in and who has done well rewarded with his first call-up at that level", said Clement.
