England Call-Up For Chelsea Goalkeeper Of Nigerian Descent
Kelechi Chibueze has been called up to the England U16 squad for two international friendlies against Croatia this month.

Chibueze is among five Chelsea starlets named on the roster by manager Kevin Betsy, the others being Levi Colwill, Samuel Iling, Jamal Musiala and Xavier Simons.

The goalkeeper was in between the pipes for the Young Lions in Sunday evening's fixture at the Branko Čavlović-Čavlek Stadium.

He was selected to be in goal ahead of another player of Nigerian descent, Tottenham Hotspur's Tobi Oluwayemi.

Last season, Noni Madueke (PSV), Armstrong Okoflex (Celtic) and goalkeeper Daniel Jinadu (West Ham) featured for England U16s and will be hoping to be promoted to the U17s ahead of the 2019 Fifa U17 World Cup.

England U16s will face Croatia in their second friendly on July 24, starting from 1930 hours local time.
