Nketiah overcomes heartbreak aged 14 to make England debut

By Joel, 15, Football Correspondent, Jill Dando News

Eddie Nketiah made his debut just years after his heartbreak of being rejected by Chelsea as a 14 year old.

The goalpoacher said the knock gave him the determination to succeed at Arsenal he has fought into the first team – now onto England.

So it was extra special for Eddie as he made his England debut at Wembley against Australia.

The striker won his first full cap when he was introduced as a 73-minute substitute during the Three Lions’ 1-0 friendly win over the Socceroos, with Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins grabbing the winning goal.

Eddie has now represented his country at every level from under-18s upwards, and scored 35 goals in 38 youth appearances in total, including a record 16 strikes at under-21 level.
