How Chelsea Maintained England Record

Premier League giants Chelsea have maintained their record as the biggest conveyor of players for the England national team after Nigerian-born defender Fikayo Tomori made his debut for the Three Lions earlier this week.

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori made his first appearance for the England national team on Sunday night.

He was a second-half substitute for Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold during the Euro 2020 qualifier with Kosovo.

Fikayo Tomori played the final six minutes of the game which ended in a 4-0 win over hosts Kosovo.

It was the final Euro 2020 qualifier for England who have already booked their place at the tournament billed for 12 cities across the European continent next summer.

With his (Fikayo Tomori) debut for England, Chelsea have now been responsible for nine of the last 21 debutants for the 1966 world champions.

The nine players started their football careers at the Chelsea training ground in Cobham, West London between age 6 and 10 as confirmed by assistant coach at Chelsea, Jody Morris.

The players are Jack Cork (Burnley), Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth), Declan Rice (West Ham United), Nathaniel Chalobah (Watford) and Fikayo Tomori (Chelsea).

Others are Mason Mount (Chelsea), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea), Tammy Abraham (Chelsea) and Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea).

Fikayo Tomori was eligible for Nigeria before he made the decision to represent England.
