Video: Hudson-Odoi justifies first England start with brilliant assist for Barkley to score in Montenegro

Callum Hudson-Odoi made mincemeat of his man down the left before having his shot at goal turned in by Ross Barkley for England on Monday night.

The 18-year-old earned his first Three Lions cap during the 5-0 win over the Czech Republic last Friday and he was granted a first start for his country on Monday against Montenegro as his reward.

Hudson-Odoi has fully justified Gareth Southgate’s decision in the first half, providing the assist for Ross Barkley to score from close range in the 38th minute.

The Chelsea teenager left two defenders for dead with a pair of dummies before shooting for the far post and Barkley made sure the ball found its way into the net with a neat touch.
