Chelsea Defender Tomori : I Never Imagined Winning The World Cup & Going Up With BrightonChelsea wonderkid Fikayo Tomori has admitted that he never thought that he would win the Fifa U20 World Cup and help Brighton & Hove secure promotion to the English top-flight in the same season.

The central defender joined the Seagulls in the January transfer window and went on to make nine appearances in the Championship, before starring in South Korea as the Young Lions won the World Cup for the first time in their history.

''At the beginning on the season I was just playing for the under-23s and wasn’t sure if I was going out on loan,'' Tomori told  Brighton and Hove Independent.

''But to then go up with Brighton and win the World Cup, it’s something I never would have imagined.

''It was very beneficial (Albion loan spell). Being part of a promotion-winning side gives you confidence.

''Even though I didn’t play as much as I would have liked to, I still played a part in it.''

The Canadian-born Fikayo Tomori was 18 when he made his professional debut for Chelsea in their 1-1 draw with Leicester City on the final day of the 2015-2016 season.
