England U21 coach Aidy Boothroyd has praised the work of Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Boothroyd complimented Hudson-Odoi for his on field and off field attitude.
Callum already made his senior international debut but a lengthy injury saw him ruled out for almost six months and now he is having to prove himself all over again. Hence the run out with the U21 side will be of great benefit to the young winger as he tries to regain his place in the English national team and cement a starting spot at Chelsea.
“He’s been brilliant for us, if a player was a senior and then came back down to us they could be moody but he has been first class, on and off the pitch,” Boothroyd said in his post-match press conference.
“If anything in both games he was almost trying too hard, things don’t come off but what he did tonight was exceptional.”
“He gets his minutes with us and I’m sure he’ll do well at his club team,” he added.
“He is in a brilliant place, learning off a great coach and I know because he has said he is enjoying being there at such a big club and when he comes to us he is ready and fresh hopefully we can send him back as a better player.”
