Of all Chelsea’s academy product, Mason Mount looks to be the only one who has cemented his place in the England squad.
Recently, Reece James was handed a call-up, and the young Blues right-back is another player that will push for a place in the squad, although that right-back position seems very competitive.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi are two names to have gotten call-ups but now seem far from the team, after a return from long-term injuries, while Tammy Abraham is currently third choice striker, as Everton’s in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin, has seemed to take second place behind Harry Kane.
Chelsea legend has warned Blues homegrown players that they need to respond to the competitive nature of the Three Lions squad, saying that it wasn’t even easy for their manager Frank Lampard during his playing days.
Nevin told the club’s official website of the challenges being faced by home-grown stars: “You have to enjoy these moments because it can all change very quickly, no matter how high you are flying at any time.
“Callum Hudson-Odoi looked like a stick-on for a place in that team, as did Ruben Loftus-Cheek, but if things do not go your way there are plenty of players ready, willing and very able to show they are hungry enough to grab it themselves.
“What about Tammy Abraham as well, he looked like he was nudging Harry Kane out of the way for that No.9 shirt with the three lions on the front, but suddenly Dominic Calvert-Lewin hits an incredible run of form and the pecking order moves again.”
