Tammy Abraham got off to a bright start for Swansea City after scoring a decisive goal on his debut for Swansea against Richmond Kickers in a friendly encounter on Thursday morning.

Paul Clement’s side ran out 2-1 winner courtesy the teenager’s 80th-minute winner in their second USA tour game.

Oliver McBurnie had given the Swans a first half lead before the United Soccer League outfit levelled proceedings through substitute Franck Tayou in the 69th minute.

The on-loan Chelsea attacker, introduced alongside Ghana international Jordan Ayew on the hour mark, restored the English topflight outfit’s parity after connecting to a Martin Olsson cross in the 80 minute.

The England U21 international, of Nigerian descent, was delighted with his goalscoring debut and spoke of his desire to replicate such feat in the English Premier League.

“I am delighted to get my first goal,” he told club website.

“My aim is to get these goals when the Premier League season starts. I want to show the team and gaffer that I am willing to work hard, score goals and help the team as much as I can.”

The former Bristol City poacher will be hoping to continue life at the Wales outfit with another impressive performance when they take on North Carolina FC on July 23.
