Chelsea take look at very best of American youth talent
Chelsea are taking a close look at the cream of North America's best young talent.
Eighteen of America's best youth players, named in Disney's Soccer Showcase All-Star Team on Sunday at Disney's Wide World of Sports, have been invited by Chelsea to train and compete at our Cobham training facilities.
Eddie Newton, an FA Cup winner as a player with Chelsea and coach of the Under 16 side during their visit to the States, told the club's website: "During the last few days at Disney's Soccer Showcase, we have witnessed some incredible young talent in America.
"Through Chelsea's partnerships with Disney and adidas, we are able to bring these All-Stars to England to train and compete at the Chelsea Academy. I'm sure the young players will benefit from and enjoy the first class facilities we have at Chelsea and this new Youth Cup international competition is part of what the sport is all about."
