Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea delivered the first call to England

The very quoted Chelsea teenager, Callum Hudson-Odoi received his first senior call-up in England.

The 18-year-old was hired on Gareth Southgate's team after Manchester United's Luke Shaw became the fourth player to retire due to injury.

Hudson-Odoi, part of the triumph of the Under 17 World Cup in 2017, was raised by the Under 21 team for the upcoming double double of Euro 2020 against the Czech Republic and Montenegro.

"It was a crazy day, but receiving my first (senior) international call-up is an incredible feeling," he said.

"Today was a very long day for me because I had to go to Bristol first for U21 and then they told me I had to come here to St. George's Park, it was a crazy experience but I'm glad to receive the call and it is a good feeling to be here too.

"I thought the manager (Aidy Boothroyd) was joking. I was shocked and when I knew I really had to go further, I couldn't believe it. I was happy.

"It's a dream come true. Now I have to work hard, enjoy every moment and keep working, only I hope to have an impact when I have the opportunity.

"Everyone here is very humble and very nice. They make sure you feel comfortable, nobody has an ego here, so I hope to meet more guys here."
