Carney Chukwuemeka has expressed his delight after making his debut for Chelsea, in their 3-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Chukwuemeka, who joined Chelsea from Aston Villa in the summer, came on in the 86th minute in place of Conor Gallagher for his Blues debut.
And commenting on his first outing for Chelsea, Chukwuemeka wrote on Twitter:”Debut in blue💙& 3 Points😁Just the beginning. Thank you God🙏🏾.”
Goals from Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja gave Chelsea the comfortable win over Wolves.
It is now three consecutive wins and back-to-back 3-0 score lines for new Chelsea manager Graham Potter.
Born in Austria to Nigerian parents and later raised in Northampton, England, Chukwuemeka joined the Aston Villa academy from the Northampton Town academy in March 2016.

The 18-year-old midfielder signed his first professional contract with Villa in July 2020. He made his senior debut for the team on 19 May 2021 in a 2–1 away victory over Tottenham Hotspur, hitting the post within minutes of entering the game.
On 23 May 2021, he was named Aston Villa Academy Player of the Season for the 2020–21 season. The following day, Chukwuemeka was part of the Aston Villa U18s squad that won the FA Youth Cup, beating Liverpool U18s 2–1 in the final.
Chukwuemeka made his first senior start on 28 August 2021 in a 1–1 draw against Brentford, a performance former Arsenal star Paul Merson hailed as “outstanding”, adding “he will be an absolute star”.
He has featured for England’s U-17, U-18 and U-19 teams and is eligible to play for the Three Lions senior side, Nigeria and Austria.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.

Why won’t he be capped?……Why attacking someone who is wishing for a good thing for the SE that he loves so much?……You claim to love SE but you jump to celebrate mediocrity whenever it’s associated with SE but become angry when genuine talent is associated with SE……[email protected] God bless you for the Good wishes you have for the team you love……Even if a dream is impossible it’s still good to dream it because nothing is impossible…….Let them keep celebrating Musa Ighalo and co and deceiving themselves that they are SE fans.Mtchew

Ok! That means WE need to go to all the FOOTBALL ACADEMIES around the WORLD and start CAPING all the PLAYERS of NIGERIAN DECENT all because WE don’t know who will turn out to be the next MESSI tomorrow…
