Chelsea fans are ecstatic after Callum Hudson-Odoi received a call-up to the England squad for their upcoming international games — on his 19th birthday.

Hudson-Odoi has been flying since his coming back from the Achilles injury he suffered towards the back end of last season, contributing three assists in just five Premier League appearances (via Transfermarkt).

He came off the bench to devastating effect in the 4-4 draw at home to Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday evening, playing the joint-third most key passes of any Chelsea player in a 30-minute cameo (via WhoScored).

Fans are over the moon with his call-up to the England senior side following his return to fitness as they took to Twitter to react.
