Chelsea youngster Calum Hudson-Odoi has made his debut for the England national team, but didn’t get a call up to the Three Lions squad for the Euro qualifying games against Czech Republic and Bulgaria.
Hudson-Odoi wasn’t selected having only just made a return from injury after an Achilles tendon injury kept him out of action since April.
CHO as he’s fondly called has now revealed he has been receiving quality advice from Manchester City star Raheem Sterling.
“I’d say he is one of the best wingers in the world right now,” said Hudson Odoi of Sterling.
“When I watch him play it’s an amazing feeling because he likes to help and contribute to the team as much as possible. ‘I look at him as a player and say if I can be like that, get the goals he’s getting and the way he’s playing for the team, it could be amazing, not just for me but the team as well.
“When I have the opportunity, I do speak to Raheem. I ask him, ‘How do you get all the goals you are getting, how do you work for the team, how do you impact in big games?’
“He gives you the best advice possible. He’ll tell me to keep working hard, he’ll tell me how to get the goals, how to get the assists.
“For a person like that to help you, it’s an amazing feeling. Obviously, he’s in a different team so he doesn’t have to do that. But he does because he wants everyone to do well.
“But a player like him, it’s a massive thing to know he’s in the national team and I can chat to him and say what’s good and what’s not good. It’s an amazing feeling.”
