Calum Chambers was captain of England u21s as they made the final of the Toulon Tournament on Friday afternoon.
The Young Lions knew that their fate was in their own hands as they took to the pitch for their final group game of the tournament, having won their previous three.
A 1-0 win over Japan, thanks to a goal from Lewis Baker from the penalty spot in the first half at the Stade Leo Lagrange in Toulon, sealed their passage.
If they win Sunday’s final it will be the first time they have picked up the trophy since 1994, the year before Chambers was born.
After the game, Calum tweeted:
Calum disappeared at the tail end of the season and we can only assume that he was injured. Many players are ‘disappeared’ like this at Arsenal when they’ve picked up a problem the club don’t want to talk about. Serge Gnabry once vanished for a year.
This win will do Calum’s confidence the world of good and if he can come back to Arsenal with a winners medal in his pocket? Well, that wouldn’t hurt either.
