Watch Nathaniel Chalobah score a perfect volley in England training

21-year-old Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah was one of a few England under-21 players to be called up for interim manager Gareth Southgate’s senior England team following a spate of injuries to his first-choice players.

Chalobah’s impressed in his limited minutes for Chelsea this season, leading manager Antonio Conte to praise his attitude. Now he’s been rewarded with a chance to train with the full national team, and is already making the most of it in training.



Look at that technique! The patience to let it drop, the flawless strike, and just look at how it nestles perfectly in the top corner. They really don’t get much better than that.

You know it’s a good volley when even your defender (Roger Klotz look-a-like Jesse Lingard) can’t help but be impressed.


Chalobah and his fellow youngsters probably won’t get a chance to play with the first team during this international break, but if he keeps scoring crackers like this, it won’t be long before he’s a real part of the full squad.
