Callum Hudson-Odoi wins European Super Cup with Chelsea

Published on: 12 August 2021

English born Ghanaian winger, Callum Hudson-Odoi, has added the European Super Cup to his trophy cabinet after Chelsea defeated Villareal to win the title in Belfast. 

Hudson-Odoi started and lasted 82 minutes before he was replaced by Cesar Azpilicueta as Chelsea won 6-5 on penalties to begin the season in a victorious way.

The game ended 1-1 after 120 minutes, but goal scorer for Chelsea Hakim Ziyech had to be replaced after 43 minutes following an injury he picked during the game.

The Moroccan opened in the 27th minute but the Yellow Submarines leveled in the 73rd minute through Gerard Moreno.

Chelsea brought on Kepa Arizzabalaga with seconds remaining to replace Edouard Mendy for the penalty shootouts.

The decision by Thomas Tuchel paid off as the Spanish goalkeeper saved two penalties to help Chelsea win the Super Cup 6-5.

Hudson-Odoi will be hoping for a good campaign after a blistering pre-season form with the Blues.

The 20-year-old was in Ghana during the summer holidays to spend time with friends and family.
