Callum Hudson-Odoi, the Chelsea youngster who has been gathering praise all around in recent times, had previously scored a spectacular goal for the club’s development squad against Liverpool.
Posted on the club’s official Instagram with the caption “#FlashbackFriday to when @Calteck10 did THIS against Liverpool for our development squad!” the video has been earning Hudson-Odoi all the applause he deserves.
Check out the clip below-
After receiving a through-ball in the middle of the field, the 18-year-old sprints and dribbles past three Liverpool defenders, dashes past the goalkeeper in the opposition box and shoots the ball into the net.
The showcase of flair has been bringing in approval for the young Englishman, and fans are also starting to hail him as a replacement for the club’s former talisman Eden Hazard, who made his way to the Spanish Capital this summer, joining Real Madrid.
Hudson-Odoi signed a new deal with Frank Lampard’s side yesterday, securing five years at Stamford Bridge, with a weekly wage of £120,000.
The Chelsea gaffer has also been hailing his favourite youngster a lot, recently.
He spoke during the pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s game, where the Blues will be facing Jurgen Klopp’s boys at home.
“He has got everything we are trying to bring, we know the talent he has that he has shown on occasions in the first team when he has had his opportunity. I think there is a lot more. It’s pure hard work that will get him there.” Lampard said.
“Now that a five-year contract is signed it is where the hard work really starts for him,” he added.
