Five members of the victorious England squad are on the books at Chelsea and a proud Conte praised the quintet of Marc Guehi, Jonathan Panzo, Conor Gallagher, George McEachran and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
“Congratulations to England,” said Conte. “I think that the football in England is improving a lot. And you can see with the results – U20, U19, now U17… it means the football is growing in a great way.
“Many congratulations for the whole team and above all the five players who play for Chelsea. We must be proud for our academy.”
