Callum Hudson Odoi scores a brace as Chelsea lift FA Youth Cup title

English-born Ghanaian striker Callum Hudson Odoi netted a brace Chelsea thump Arsenal 4-0 to win the FA Youth Cup for the fifth consecutive season.

The Ghanaian was in inspiring form for the young Blues, who were coming into the game with a first-leg advantage.

The Blues opened the scoring after Billy Gilmour superbly chest-and-finish on the half-volley early on at the Emirates effectively ended the final as a serious contest.

Three further goals in a 20-minute spell placed a shiny gloss on another dominant display from Chelsea as Callum Hudson-Odoi bagged a brace either side of a neat finish from Tino Anjorin.

Callum Hudson Odoi lasted the entire duration and was key to the club's success on Monday night. Meanwhile, compatriot Tariq Lamptey was an unused substitute.

The 17-year-old has already featured for the junior team of the three Lions of England and was a member of the team that won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in India in 2017.
