CALLUM HUDSON-ODOI blew his chance in the England starting line up against Kosovo, Roy Keane claimed.

The Chelsea winger was given just his second start by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate, with England having already secured Euro 2020 qualification.

But the 19-year-old failed to make an impact on his third international appearance, with ITV pundit Keane slamming Hudson-Odoi for giving away the ball too often.

He said at half-time: “Hudson-Odoi hasn’t taken his chance yet. He isn’t stretching the defence and has given the ball away too cheaply.

“He needs to step his game up in the second half.”

Hudson-Odoi was replaced in the second-half by Marcus Rashford, who went onto net the third of the game in England’s 4-0 win.

And Arsenal legend Lee Dixon reckons the Chelsea forward has done nothing to force his way into Southgate’s attacking line.

He said: “There are only two games left before the squad is announced.

“He needs to just run at his full-back. He has to attack more rather than playing the ball inside.”

Hudson-Odoi only returned to the Chelsea squad in September having sustained an Achilles injury in April.

New Blues boss Frank Lampard pursued the 19-year-old to snub a switch to German champions Bayern Munich this summer.

And Lampard has handed Hudson-Odoi 11 appearances this term.
