When Bayern Munich came with multiple bids to sign Chelsea academy product Callum Hudson-Odoi, the Blues know why they held on to the young winger and even paid him extraordinary wages to tie his future to the club for at least the next five years.
CHO as he’s fondly called scored twice in his first competitive start for England U21 on Tuesday night as the Young Lions beat Austria U21 5-1 and Hudson-Odoi was the star of the show as he scored two first-half goals in the 5-1 European Championship qualifying win over Austria U21.
Hudson-Odoi had spent six months out due to an Achilles injury that occurred towards the end of last season and his form since his injury comeback has been impressive.
The 18-year-old has either scored or assisted in each of his seven appearances thus far, including academy games.
Hudson-Odoi scored two stunning goals as England U21s defeated Austria 5-1, and the Chelsea youngster has revealed that he’s still keen on improving his game especially his finishes so he can get more goals and assists.
“I definitely think I can improve,” Hudson-Odoi said.
“I am not a perfect player. No one is a perfect player, I think that every day when I go onto a pitch, I want to try my best, work hard and keep improving. I say to myself, keep going, keep working hard and hopefully, more opportunities will come.
“I am delighted to get the goals. It is goals that I always try to get as well as assists – any contributions to the team. I am happy with the finishes and I will hopefully build on it and get many more.”
