"I remember speaking to my mum, she was emotional, she was in tears.
"For me, I am a strong character, it doesn't affect me as much, but it could affect people who don't have my personality.
"I was sat in the changing room straight after the game and went on my phone. I wasn't going to shy away from the situation, although I did have some supportive messages. The other side is not nice to hear.
"I went through a lot of emotion after the penalty miss. I had experience of taking penalties last season, big ones as well. Everyone misses penalties. To miss the penalty... I was devastated and I had a lot of abuse after," The Sun quoting Abraham's comments in September.
