"It's been a crazy experience but I'm delighted to get the call and it's a nice feeling to be here as well," Hudson-Odoi said.

"I thought the manager [Under-21 manager Aidy Boothroyd] was joking.

"I was shocked and then when I heard that I actually had to go over [to England's training base at St George's Park], I couldn't believe it. I was delighted.

"It's a dream come true. Now I've got to work hard, enjoy every moment and keep working to just hopefully make an impact when I get the opportunity," a delighted Hudson-Odoi added.
