Chelsea youngster Dominic Solanke made his England U21 debut as the Three Lions drew 0-0 with Bosnia-Herzegovina in their Euro 2017 qualifier.

The 18-year old partnered Arsenal’s Chuba Akpom upfront, as fellow Chelsea players Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Nathaniel Chalobah and Lewis Baker also started in midfield in Sarajevo.

Baker, who is on loan with Solanke at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, fired one of the few chances of the game wide of the post and was replaced with 20 minutes to go by Sunderland’s Duncan Watmore. Loftus-Cheek and Solanke were both replaced in the dying stages, with Chalobah playing a full game.

Chelsea player Lewis Baker declared to TheFA.com that he’s enjoying his experience at Vitesse Arnhem –where he’s on loan along withalongside Izzy Brown, Nathan Allan, Dominic Solanke and Danilo Pantic.

The offensive midfielder impressed in this first three months and he claimed that he’s learning a lot, hoping to come back to the Blues as a better player:

“I’m really enjoying it, the football is slightly different and is a lot more technical and tactical out there.

“When we play the bigger teams, it’s also a physical game and I think I’m going to learn a lot out there. 

I’ve already learned a lot in the first few months and hopefully that can increase and next season, I’ll return to Chelsea as a better player. 

“The Eredivisie is a top league and I think it’s a good learning place for me, on the pitch and off the pitch, seeing different cultures and the way players live with the different playing styles.

JOSE MOURINHO RUBEN LOFTUS-CHEEK
Mourinho states Loftus-Cheeck was the best trophy of Chelsea Academy this year

Speaking to Chelsea website before WBA game Chelsea boss José Mourinho discussed the importance of the Academy and the development of player like Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who will start again tonight after his perfect debut with Liverpool and that will be a very important player for next year squad, as Mourinho always stated also in the past months:

“I am excited but I keep emotional control because if I don’t I can lose the players or I can help the players to go the wrong way. So yes I am excited but with emotional control and stability because in this moment they need stability”

“The Academy is a process. The process starts with the facilities but it doesn’t end there. It ends with the cooperation between the Academy and the first team area, and at the moment we are working well and I think the players feel it. They are the best witnesses of that work and we know we are going in the right direction”

“This year the most important title for the Academy is Ruben, not the UEFA Youth League or the FA Youth Cup – the best trophy is Ruben and we know that we are doing things well”

Speaking about what can interrupt the growing of a young talent and what can ruin his career, Mourinho is sure the main causes are two:

The agents and the parents, because when the players are almost there and are in the process to be almost there, parents and agents think they are already there and they make the players think they are there, and they are not there”

“So instead of thinking about money during a career, they think about money before a career starts and everything gets every confused. That doesn’t help the players because the players need stability”

“It is not the case but imagine Ruben’s family or Ruben’s agent in this moment pushing the kid to go, or that the kid has to go on loan. That is not what he needs, he needs stability. He played against Liverpool, he plays against West Bromwich, next pre-season he starts with us, and next pre-season he is stable because he is part of the squad, he is not trying to win a position in the squad”

“He knows he is not going on loan, he knows he is going to stay, and players need this kind of stability unless they play in small clubs where at the age of 17 or 18 they can go directly to the first team”

Mourinho also revealed that Izzy Brown is going to play at West Bromwich, where he had his debut two years ago, before signing for Chelsea:

“Izzy Brown may not start but he plays”

“I want him to have his debut for Chelsea at West Brom because it is his old club and it means double for him – to play for Chelsea, to be a champion and play against his old club”.

RUBEN LOFTUS-CHEEK LIVERPOOL
Ruben Loftus-Cheek in action against Liverpool

Speaking to Chelsea TV Blues youngster Izzy Brown explained how him and some young fellow-mates like Ruben Loftus-Cheek could improve in the last months, where they often work with the first team squad:

“The last few months have been the best in my football career, the way I have been playing”

“I have definitely improved this season and the last few games showed I have matured as a player and played some of my best football. To win the Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League and score in the finals is a big thing for me. I am happy with my performance so far but it doesn’t stop now because there are some big games coming up”

Brown was named among the first team subs by José Mourinho on several occasions this season and watched carefully his friend Loftus-Cheek starting and impressing against Liverpool:

He was great in the game, he didn’t give the ball away once”

“He has been an excellent player this season. In training he shows what he is capable of and to go out and put it on the pitch is something different. He marked his claim why he is one of the best young players in England. I am so happy for him to have played 60 minutes against Liverpool because I think he deserved it as well”

“We had a laugh and a joke afterwards about him being a bit tired because he said he had never witnessed anything as quick as that, but he handled it well and coped with it excellently”

“You have got to use your body and your fitness. You have to be so fit to play in the Premier League”

“Everyone at the Academy, that’s where they want to be, they want to be Ruben – to play for the Chelsea first team. For me to be with him every day is good for me because I can learn what I have to do to be where Ruben is. I think I am ready to play whenever I am called upon”.
