Yesterday night Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi made his full England debut vs Montenegro and he showed all his quality and skills.
The Blues legend Joe Cole watched the game as a TV pundit and praised Hudson-Odoi: “With his quality once he flips it on his right foot and goes outside you he has gone. You have to be a very, very good defender to combat it”. Cole told Chelsea official website. “The slight mistake he made in the first half for the [Montenegro] goal is a learning mistake. It’s something an 18-year-old would make. But what he brings you is power, pace, directness, and fearlessness. He is a great player and he can be even better. He needs to develop and he is getting better and better every time I see him.”
Also Joe Cole rememberer when he trained with Chelsea youngster:
“I actually trained with Callum when I was coming back from America,’” Cole said. “I was lucky enough to train with the Chelsea Under-18s, and I saw him first hand. He actually stood me up a couple of times! You can’t catch him. Even at an older age for a footballer you can sort your feet out and stop them going by you, but with that pace and power there’s nothing you can do”.
