CHELSEA starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi netted England Under-21’s opener against Austria with a superb volley.
The 18-year-old found himself unmarked in the box and expertly finished off a cross from wing-back Max Aarons.
Hudson-Odoi bagged his first goal at U21 level having netted five for the U17 set up winning the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2017.
The young winger has made two senior appearances, debuting against against Czech Republic.
An Achilles injury from last April sideliend the 18-year-old for the start of the season, though he has returned to make two appearances this term.
But unlike in-form pair Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, returning Hudson-Odoi was not selected for the Three Lions first-team.
His opener 12 minutes in was improved on the 28th minute after Eddie Nketiah converted from a corner.
