​Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi labelled his England debut as a 'dream come true' after making his international bow against the Czech Republic at Wembley. 


The 18-year-old came on for Raheem Sterling - who netted a hat-trick during the 5-0 win - after 70 minutes, and had a hand in the Three Lions' fifth of the game, with it being his shot that led of Tomas Kalas' own goal six minutes from time.

In what is undoubtedly a moment that will live long in the memory of Hudson-Odoi, the Blues winger took to ​Twitter after the game to acknowledge what had been a lifelong ambition of representing his country. 


He said: "Dream come true!! Absolutely delighted to have made my senior debut for England and with a 5-0 win, hopefully many more to come!!!"

The introduction of Hudson-Odoi also proved to be a historic one for England, with the ​Chelsea

man becoming the youngest player in the nation's history to make his debut in a competitive game (18y 135d), breaking a record held by former Manchester United midfielder Duncan Edwards since April 1955 (18y 183d). 


Hudson-Odoi's form for Chelsea this season - six goals and six assists in all competitions - had initially led to an international call-up for England's Under-21 side during this break, although withdrawals from Gareth Southgate's senior side led to the opportunity for the attacker, who is still yet to make his full ​Premier League debut under Maurizio Sarri.

Next for England is their second Euro 2020 Group A qualifier away to Montenegro, as the Three Lions hope to pick up where they left off at Wembley.
