Chelsea Recall Star Midfielder From England Camp Ahead Of FAYC Cracker vs TottenhamFA Youth Cup defending champions Chelsea have recalled Young Lions midfielder of Nigerian descent Faustino Anjorin from the England U17 camp ahead of Tuesday's intriguing clash vs Tottenham Hotspur.

Chelsea youth-team guru Chelsea Youth has tweeted that Anjorin had been training with the world champions in Portugal before he was recalled, so he will not be part of the team to play the Netherlands today.

The 16-year-old started England's 4-0 loss to Portugal on February 9 but failed to come off the bench two days later as Steve Cooper's team were held to a 1-1 draw by Germany.

He found the net for Chelsea in the third and fourth round of the FA Youth Cup against Scunthorpe United and West Bromwich Albion.

Midfielder Tariq Uwakwe started both games and is in line to make his third appearance in this season's competition against Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs's England U17 World Cup-winning defender Timothy Eyoma was missing from the U23 team held to a 2-2 draw by West Ham on Monday, fueling speculation that he is set to play against Chelsea tonight, having started in the earlier rounds against Preston North End and Bournemouth.

Goalkeeper Joshua Oluwayemi may be included in Spurs' match day squad vs Chelsea.
