Whizkid boasts England caps record - but still waiting for Chelsea debut

Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is set to make his 88th appearance for England tonight.

The defensive midfielder, who made his England Under-16 debut aged 13, may have already set an unofficial record, says the Daily Star.

Liverpool star James Milner made 46 appearances for the Under-21 squad and a total of 70 between Under-16 to Under-21 level - but is still 17 behind Chalobah.

Despite an encouraging international career, Chalobah is still awaiting his first competitive appearance for Chelsea.

The 21-year-old joined Chelsea's academy in 2005 and has spent the past four seasons on loan in the Championship and one year with Napoli.
