How Chelsea’s young talents fared international stage.

In a recent round of international fixtures, Chelsea players featured prominently across various age groups and countries. Here’s a comprehensive look at their performances:

Argentina vs. Ecuador:
Chelsea midfielders Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo faced each other in a World Cup qualifying match. Argentina emerged victorious with a narrow 1-0 win. The contest, held in Buenos Aires, was characterized by its physicality, with 22 fouls in total. Argentina dominated possession and shots but found it challenging to break through. The breakthrough came with just 12 minutes left when the legendary Lionel Messi curled an exquisite free-kick into the top corner for his 104th international goal. Next up, Argentina faces a trip to Bolivia, while Ecuador hosts Uruguay.

France Under-21 vs. Denmark Under-21:
Malo Gusto and Lesley Ugochukwu, both Chelsea players, played over an hour for France’s Under-21 side in a friendly against Denmark. The duo started the game, with Gusto at right-back and Ugochukwu in a midfield role. France established dominance after surviving early scares and secured a convincing 4-1 victory. Goals from Johann Lepenant and Rayan Cherki put France ahead, and despite Denmark pulling one back, Les Espoirs sealed the win in stoppage time. France’s European Championship qualifying campaign begins with a home game against Slovenia.

Brazil Under-23 vs. Morocco Under-23:
Andrey Santos, who captained Brazil’s Under-23 team, played in the first of two friendlies against Morocco, part of preparations for next summer’s Olympic Games. The match was interrupted for over 20 minutes due to floodlight failure in Fez. Morocco managed to score the only goal late in the game. The teams are set to face each other again soon.

Finland Under-21 vs. Iceland Under-21:
Lucas Bergstrom, who has been on Chelsea’s bench this season, played the first half for Finland’s Under-21 team in a friendly against Iceland. Bergstrom made several good saves to keep the game goalless until half-time. However, Iceland surged ahead in the second half, eventually winning 3-2 after the entire Finnish team was substituted.

England Under-18s and Under-17s:
In the Tournoi tournament, England Under-18s faced host nation France, with six Chelsea players featuring. Travis Akomeah, Ishe Samuels-Smith, and Michael Golding started the game, while Jimmy-Jay Morgan, Tyrique George, and Harrison Murray-Campbell came off the bench during the second half.

At the Under-17 level, Shumaira Mheuka scored for England in the first minute of a friendly against Portugal in Spain. Although England led 2-0, they eventually suffered a 3-2 defeat after letting their lead slip away.

Chelsea’s young talents showcased their skills on the international stage, gaining valuable experience and contributing to their respective teams’ performances.
