- Chelsea won the European title against Manchester City in Porto last Saturday
- Hudson-Odoi was an unused substitute on Thomas Tuchel’s side and triumphed 1-0

Callum Hudson-Odoi showed off his incredible footwork in a game of cage football in Ghana, less than a week after Chelsea won the Champions League.
The Blues midfielder was an unused substitute at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto on Saturday, May 29, as Thomas Tuchel’s side swept 1-0 past Manchester City to win the European showpiece.
And the winger, who has played seven games this season and scored twice on the continental stage, showed his silky skills and mesmerizing close control in a casual cage match just six days later.

During the video, the 20-year-old was shown terrorizing his marker with several steps
The video shows the England international terrorizing his marker with several transfers and Ronaldinho’s famous ‘flip-flap’ move, while wearing his Chelsea kit.
The Twitter user captioned it: “Love these videos of Cal having a good time,” followed by a Ghanaian flag and a blue heart emoji, and also tweeted a follow-up video of Hudson-Odoi cleverly knocking the ball back to a team mate.
Hudson-Odoi received three senior caps in England in 2019, played regularly in the country’s age groups and is of Ghanaian descent.
The video comes six days after the Blues won the Champions League final on Saturday, May 29

His father Bismark Odoi played for Ghanaian side Hearts of Oak, and his older brother Bradley Hudson-Odoi – a retired former non-League striker – was born in Accra, the country’s capital.
Hudson-Odoi recently posted a photo of him in Accra on Instagram, along with a video of him dancing, with the caption: ‘GHANAAAA OOO we backkk! Let’s enjoy.’
The 20-year-old has made 37 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring five goals, but was used more sparingly by Tuchel than his leading predecessor, Frank Lampard, who replaced the German in January.
