Callum Hudson-Odoi picked up a knock in training to his shoulder and is unavailable to face Portugal tonight. A huge blow for the #YoungLions but they are confident he will be fit for the last game against Croatia. #CFC

The England U-21 seemed to miss Callum against Portugal as they lost 2-0 to the Portugese side, now failing to score a goal in two consecutive games.
However, there’s some good news for Chelsea fans as well as England U-21 as it was further reported that winger’s shoulder injury isn’t very serious and he is expected to be available for their final group game against Croatia on Wednesday.
N’golo Kante on the other hand have returned back to London to continue his rehabilitation process.
