Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu completed 90 minutes on Thursday night for national side Wales – and some Blue fans on Twitter were really impressed by his performance.
Ampadu, 19, is a highly-rated talent at Stamford Bridge and has already become a regular on the senior international stage with Wales.
He spent the 2019/20 campaign out on loan with RB Leipzig to try help his development, but managed just seven appearances as he struggled to break into their side and he wasn’t helped by injuries too.
But Chelsea supporters got see him in action on Thursday and he was one of the standout players during Wales’ 1-0 victory against Finland in the Nations League.
The teenager played at centre-back for Ryan Giggs’ side and barely put a foot wrong, as he was extremely composed with his passing and in total contract defensively.
Ampadu is such a versatile star that has shown in his short career so far he can play at both centre-back or in a defensive midfield role, so pinpointing his best position sooner rather than later would be for the best.
A selection of Chelsea fans on social media believe that the Welshman is a rising star that can be a big player for them.
Here are some Blues fans discussing the possible future for Ampadu:
How many more performances are needed before the right people truly realise Ampadu is truly special. #CFC

So let me get this straight, Ampadu has ANOTHER Amasterclass at CENTRE BACK and now people don’t want Declan Rice for DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER?
