Chelsea midfielder Chukwuemeka named player of the Costa Calida Supercup for England

Chelsea midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka has been named player of the Costa Calida Supercup tournament while on international duty for England Under-20s team.

The Young Lions were in Spain for preparations ahead of next summer's Under-20 World Cup. Chukwuemeka led the Under-19s to European Championship glory earlier this summer and will be hoping for more of the same.

"Winning after winning. Happy to get player of the tournament," he posted to social media.

The 18-year-old spent six years at Villa before sealing a £20 million move to Chelsea in the summer. The teenager had just six months left on his Villa deal having declined the chance to sign a contract extension.
