    The striker’s participation in Serie A game against Hellas Verona had previously been questioned because he suffered flu-like symptoms the previous night and on Sunday 19th.

    He started the game, but only managed to play for 15 minutes before teammate Gianluca Mancini unintentionally booted him in the eye.

    Abraham shook his head in annoyance after several minutes of treatment and left the field holding a cloth to his left eye.

    Abraham posted an Instagram Story photo of himself wearing a hospital robe and still holding some padding to his eye after the 1-0 victory earned by an Ola Solbakken’s goal.

    “Thank you for the messages. I’ll be okay,” the Roma striker wrote.

    Abraham required sutures after sustaining a gash on his eyebrow, according to a statement from Roma.

    Tammy Abraham departed in the first 20 minutes after taking a serious knock to the left eye in Roma’s victory against Verona.

    Abraham, a Chelsea youth alumnus, made his first-team debut for the squad in 2016 before spending a season on loan with Bristol City of the Championship.

    He had a fantastic season there, culminating in his becoming the first player to ever win the club’s Player of the Season, Young Player of the Season, and top goalscorer trophies in the same calendar year.

    Abraham then spent more time on loan with Swansea City, although the club’s season ended with relegation from the Premier League.

    He later joined Aston Villa in 2018 and made club history by scoring 25 goals in a single season for the first time since 1977.

    Abraham previously competed for England at the youth international level, starting at the under-18 level, and he participated in the 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Poland. In November 2017, he debuted at the senior level.

    Transfer to Mourinho’s Roma

    Abraham signed a five-year contract with Serie A club Roma on August 17, 2021. 

    The reported transfer fee was £34 million, and Chelsea included a £68 million buy-back provision that would only be activated after the player had spent two seasons with Roma.

    On August 22, Abraham made his Serie A debut, providing two assists in Roma’s 3-1 victory over Fiorentina.

    He made his UEFA Europa Conference League debut in a 3-0 home victory against Trabzonspor four days later.

    He scored his first goal for Roma in a 4-0 victory over Salernitana on August 29.

    He scored his first goal in the Conference League on September 16 to seal the Giallorossi’s 5-1 win over CSKA Sofia.
