Whenever there is an international break, quite a few Chelsea players are involved with their national teams. I thought we'd try something new for this one and do a loan style roundup to keep you up to date with all of the Chelsea players with their national teams. I'm going to cut it off at the U21 level for now, as who played for the U19's outside of England can be a bit rough to find. The Chelsea crew for the England U19's were awesome though, as Todd Kane set up Patrick Bamford for the winner and Chalobah was solid as usual. So without further adieu...
- Florent Malouda - Malouda was introduced at the hour mark as France was playing Germany and went on to score the winner with a right footed shot. All in all it was an excellent cameo for Malouda in the 35 minutes or so of time on the pitch.
- Gary Cahill - Cahill was involved in the other Marquee match of the day as England hosted the Dutch. He was the only Chelsea player in the starting 11, and he was probably the most dangerous player England had on set pieces. He'd score the first for England in the 83rd minute even though he was offside at the onset of his move. Excellent all around game for Cahill, he probably didn't hurt his chances at seeing significantly more playing time this summer with this outing.
- Daniel Sturridge - Sturridge was introduced at about the 30 minute mark as Steven Gerrard went off injured. He was probably the best attacker England had for the majority of his time on the pitch, although he missed an easy chance that you'd expect Danny to finish regularly. He went off injured late in this one, no word yet on the severity of the injury.
- Ashley Cole - Cole was an unused substitute for England. I'm thrilled that he was given the day off.
