Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has won a first call-up to the England senior squad just days after being selected for the Under-21s side.
The 18-year-old Wandsworth-born wideman has enjoyed a sensational first season as a senior professional at Stamford Bridge and he has featured regularly under Blues boss Maurizio Sarri.
Hudson-Odoi was expecting to play a part for England Under-21s against Poland and Germany over the next eight days, however, the player has received an unexpected call from senior boss Gareth Southgate who has drafted him into his squad.
England take on the Czech Republic in a UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier at Wembley on Friday evening before travelling to Montenegro for another group fixture on Monday. Hudson-Odoi may not start those matches, however, he will hope to be given his senior international debut.
Hudson-Odoi has come through the youth ranks at Stamford Bridge, winning the FA Youth Cup on two occasions as well as the Under-18 Premier League. The teenager made his senior debut for The Blues in January 2018 against Newcastle United in the Emirates FA Cup. Hudson-Odoi made four first team appearances last season and has been handed a further 19 outings this term in which he has scored five goals.
The player has huge potential for the future and that has clearly been recognised by England boss Southgate.
