Callum Hudson-Odoi did not help his case for a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad according to Roy Keane, who was a pundit on ITV during the game.
The Irishman was his usual scathing self on punditry duties, and the quiet 60 or so minutes that the winger put in didn’t impress him.
“Hudson-Odoi hasn’t taken his chance yet. He isn’t stretching the defence and has given the ball away too cheaply,” Keane mused in quotes picked up by the Sun.
Lee Dixon was on the panel too, and he tended to agree:
“There are only two games left before the squad is announced. He needs to just run at his full-back. He has to attack more rather than playing the ball inside.”
After a sparkling return to action, the 19 year old’s form has faded, and he looks lacking confidence. Christian Pulisic has taken his place for Chelsea, and it’s going to be tough for him to earn the minutes he needs to regain both his own confidence, and also that of his club and country managers.
