Can Chelsea’s Ethan Ampadu get revenge on Christian Eriksen at international level?

Chelsea have a number of players away on international duty over the next two weeks and rising star Ethan Ampadu has once again been called up to the senior Wales squad.

The 18-year-old has now earned five international caps for Wales and is becoming an important member of Ryan Giggs’ side.

He is a versatile ace that can slot in at centre-back or midfield and must be delighted to gain some competitive action, as he’s still trying to make his way under senior boss Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.

Many at Chelsea expect Ampadu to go on to become a Blues first teamer one day and he’s already got maturity beyond his years.

But a recent international outing saw Wales slip to a 2-0 defeat away to Denmark in the Nations League and the Chelsea teenager didn’t have the best of nights.

Tottenham sensation Christian Eriksen scored both goals, as he helped run the show in midfield and Ampadu was penalised for handball in the penalty area.

Ampadu, who has been used as a defensive midfielder for Wales, would surely love to get some revenge on Friday when his nation once again square off against Denmark.

He will get another chance to line up against someone of Eriksen’s calibre and keeping a lid on him will be the perfect way to push him closer to the Chelsea first team.
