Chelsea boss Lampard pleased with England U21 call for Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is happy with the England U21 call for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The winger made his England debut last season before injury struck.

"That is a good shout," says Lampard.

"I spoke to Gareth (Southgate) and all I can do is say what I see from a Chelsea end and it is Gareth's choice. Callum has probably not played enough games and the international games will do him good.

"It is England Under-21s and he should be proud of that anyway."
