Chelsea coach Drummy: NextGen final great showcase for English talent

Chelsea coach Dermot Drummy says their NextGen Series final against Aston Villa will be a showcase of English youth football.

Drummy says both teams are dominated by English talent.

"I think it will be a good final. We know no other way to play than creative football but the boys must make the decisions on the pitch. It is vitally important to develop football intelligence along with a winning mentality. It is not enough just to have a big heart," Drummy told

"Villa are predominantly an English side and so are we. We have a couple of foreign boys that add to it but in England we have learned from the influx of foreign players over the years. Players have learned about technical ability and I think the coaches have learned too so it is onwards and upwards for the future of English football. It is in a good place."
