Tammy Abraham credits ‘South London link up’ for England connection with Jadon Sancho

JADON SANCHO AND TAMMY ABRAHAM caused havoc in England’s 5-0 win over Andorra this week.

Sancho set up two goals in the game, and one of his assists was to Abraham who latched onto the Man United star’s cross to hit the back of the net.

Sancho enjoyed providing Abraham with the opportunity to score the most because he knows how hard life was for them growing up in the streets of South London.

While the pair were watching the game back on England’s YouTube channel, Sancho said: “For him [Abraham] to get a goal is always a good feeling for me because of our backgrounds.

“You know, it was tough back in the day so to do it on the main stage is always a honour.”

And Abraham thinks their tough past is the reason why they bond so well on the pitch, he added: “We just have that South London link up.”

Roma baller Abraham grew up in Camberwell, while Sancho was raised in Kennington.

And Sancho previously explained to Rio Ferdinand that if it wasn’t for the older guys on his estate in the borough, he wouldn’t even be playing football today.

Pharrell’s BAPE partner Nigo has been named Kenzo’s new director

MOST PEOPLE KNOW DESIGNER NIGO for his work in fashion alongside Pharrell.

The pair came together in 2005 to create popular brands Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream which are still going strong up to this day.

And Nigo is the founder of a Bathing Ape, although it’s widely thought that Pharrell is the owner of the company.

But now Nigo has a new task on his hands, reviving fashion label Kenzo.

The Japanese native was handed the task when he was named their new artistic director last week.

Although he’s been handed a difficult task, Nigo feels like it’s fate for him to be working with the brand, which is owned by LVMH, as he shares a few similarities to its owner, Takada Kenzo.

Nigo revealed, reported by GQ: “I was born in the year that Takada Kenzo san opened his first store in Paris.

“We both graduated from the same fashion school in Tokyo. In 1993, the year that KENZO joined the LVMH Group, I started my career in fashion.”
