VIDEO: Chelsea starlet Ben Elliott makes England debut

Karamoko Dembele has been making plenty of headlines for Celtic, but the Blues have a starlet of their own impressing for club and country

Karamoko Dembele has been dominating the headlines when it comes to teenage talent turning out at a level which logic dictates should be well beyond their tender years.

The Celtic starlet is not the only youngster making waves, though, with Chelsea boasting a talent just as exciting within their academy ranks.

Blues supporters will already be aware of the considerable potential boasted by Ben Elliott, with the midfielder being tipped for a bright future at Stamford Bridge.

A Premier League stage seemingly beckons, while international recognition is already coming his way.

Dembele, at the age of 13, recently made his debut for England’s Under-15 side after switching allegiance from Scotland.

 Elliott has also graced that team, at the same age.

He went one better than his Celtic counterpart, though, as he took the captain’s armband.


Congratulations to 13 year old Chelsea FC baller Ben Elliott who made his England debut yesterday & was also captain of the young lions U15s team!

It is easy to see why Elliott is being fast-tracked by England, with the video below – courtesy of FFDTV’s YouTube channel – showcasing his incredible ability.

He may be some way off the Chelsea first team and the senior England national side but if he continues to develop at his current rate, then it may be too long before Elliott is knocking on those respective doors.
