Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi says he is looking to win a trophy with Chelsea and a place in the England team for this year’s European Championship during the last months of the season.
The 20-year-old has been left out of England’s senior squad in this international break – instead of U21 – but intends to return to a repeat Euro 2020 tournament in June.
Hudson-Odoi has made 32 appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring five goals.
However, he found it difficult to start, as most of his performances in a blues jersey came off the bench.
The midfielder says he hopes to leave a positive impression in the last two months of the season, so he achieves success with both Chelsea and England.

“That’s my main goal for the rest of the season,” he said when asked if his place in England’s senior team was a goal before Euro 2020. “Obviously try to win the trophy with Chelsea as well. But for England it’s trying to make a Euro squad.
“It’s a huge opportunity. It won’t happen many times that you can play for your country in your country in a big tournament.
“That’s the main thing. I hope I can do well the rest of the season, get back on the team for it. I’ll take it day by day, game by game.”
Hudson-Odoi faces stiff competition for a spot on Gareth Southgate’s side, and England are spoiled for choice in the attacking division.
Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, James Maddison, Jack Grealish, Jesse Lingard and Mason Mount are competing for starting places, so Southgate faces a big dilemma.
“My favorite positions are either left wing or 10,” Hudson-Odoi added.
“I feel more comfortable and confident there and I know I can score goals and assists from those positions as well, so I would say those two are [are my best positions]. “
