"It is goals that I always try to get as well as assists"

Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi is hopeful of adding more goals to his game following his belated start to the new season.

The 18-year-old scored twice for England Under-21s in their 5-1 win over Austria on Tuesday, volleying in the opener from Max Aarons' cross before adding a second just before half-time following a mazy dribble from within his own half.
Those strikes took Hudson-Odoi's record to four goals and four assists across senior and youth football since returning to action in September following a five-month layoff after he suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon.

And the England international is hopeful that he can maintain that record going forward as he looks to lock down a regular spot in Frank Lampard's team and earn his place back in the senior Three Lions squad.

"I definitely think I can improve," Hudson-Odoi said at Stadium-mk. "I am not a perfect player. No one is a perfect player, I think that every day when I go onto a pitch, I want to try my best, work hard and keep improving.

"I say to myself, keep going, keep working hard and hopefully more opportunities will come. I am delighted to get the goals. It is goals that I always try to get as well as assists - any contributions to the team.

"I am happy with the finishes and I will hopefully build on it and get many more. I have scored many solo runs, maybe not exactly like that, but I am delighted to get a goal like that.

"Hopefully many more like that will come and I will get opportunities to score. I will hopefully go back to Saturday with Chelsea and get another three points."
