Two seasons ago, Callum Hudson-Odoi emerged as one of the brightest talents in the Premier League, and it didn’t take him long to earn a Three Lions call-up and also perform well for the national team.
However, an Achilles injury that kept him out of action for six months stalled his progress, and he is yet to reach the heights that his talent deserves.
Now 20, Hudson-Odoi was called up to represent England U21s in the Euro U-21 qualifiers.
Hudson-Odoi was in fine form with a goal and an assist as England U21s defeated Andorra U-21 3-1, with the Chelsea man getting a goal and an assist.
Hudson-Odoi has now vowed to pick back form for Chelsea, as he admits that he is improving.
Asked about his long journey back from his previous Achilles injury, Hudson-Odoi told BT Sport: “I feel like I’m still improving, I’m still trying to get more strength in the calf which I lost a lost of muscle from.
“But I feel like I’m getting back to my best and hopefully sooner or later I’ll be back to normal as I was before.
“I just want to keep improving, keep working hard daily and keep getting better day-by-day.”
Hudson-Odoi then revealed hopes of breaking into the England national team.
“Of course you want to be in the senior team, you want to be competing up there every time,” he added.
“But, no matter what level I’m playing at, I want to try my best and work hard every day and hopefully get into the seniors.
“If it’s going up and down, I want to make sure I stay up there so want to keep working hard, keep my mentality strong.”
