John Terry names his picks for England’s next generation
16-year-old Nathaniel Chalobah potentially a WC2014 star?
John Terry has been an extremely busy man as of late, but sportswear giants Umbro recently managed to pin him down long enough to have a nice chat – and The Spoiler got to ask him a question ourselves!
Richard Anderson picked Jay-T’s brains over England’s next crop of young hopefuls:
Who are the most promising young England players coming through?
For me, the players that are coming through are really encouraging. Everyone’s talking about Jack [Wilshere] at Arsenal, we’ve got Josh McEachran at our place as well, and he’ll definitely play for England one day. It just looks so easy for him. He’s got great feet, he’s similar to Jack in that he looks slight, but he’s actually really strong, and that’s down to the work he does off the field.
We’ve got a young lad Nathaniel Chalobah, who’s just turned 16, he’s been training with us since he was 15. He’s really good, and confident in himself again [and a top dancer - Spoiler].
It’s difficult for me to see players in other clubs, but those two at Chelsea have definitely impressed me. I have played against Connor Wickham, physically he’s very strong, and he’s quick as well. Definitely one for the future, scored a great goal recently. Very difficult to play against!
