- Footage has emerged of Callum Hudson-Odoi showing sublime skills at school

- Clip shows him turning defenders inside out and scoring goals for fun
Footage has emerged of Callum Hudson-Odoi turning defenders inside out and scoring for fun in his school team aged 14.
The clip shared online features a number of highlights videos of the youngster in action for Whitgift school in Croydon.
Hudson-Odoi looks like a man among boys with his far superior pace, strength and skill in the video shared by Sky Sports.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was filmed as a 14-year-old at Whitgift School in Croydon
The youngster has only taken four years from this point to earn an England call-up
At one point he even pulls out the ‘elastico’ trick made famous by Ronaldinho.
He regularly picks up possession on halfway and then makes a mockery of anyone who attempted to make a challenge, using step-overs and feints to slice his way to goal.
Hudson-Odoi was also playing for Chelsea academy at the time and only two years after the video was filmed, was promoted to the Under-23s side.
His ascent has been rapid ever since and this season has been his breakthrough campaign for the Blues.

The Chelsea starlet could earn his first England cap in the Euro 2020 qualifiers
Concerned about a lack of game time under Maurizio Sarri, Hudson-Odoi handed in a transfer request as he wanted to join Bayern Munich in January but the club rejected it.
He has been called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers and fans will be desperate to see the 18-year-old in action.
It seems incredible that he has turned from that talented schoolboy to member of the England squad in just four years.
His stratospheric rise could be capped by a first international cap against the Czech Republic on Friday or Montenegro on Monday.
