Dominic Solanke has been rewarded for his sterling performances for the Chelsea B team last season by being included in the team’s preseason tour to Austria.
The Anglo Nigeria who top scored at the European Under-18 Championship was included alongside seven of his B team colleague from last season on the blues tour list of 26 to Austria where they will play two friendlies.
16 year old Solanke ended last season with the Under-18 with 18 goals and has already played in the team’s two preseason games so far.
Still eligible to play for Nigeria at senior level due to his father who hails from the land of the Super Eagles, he is the only Nigerian on the team’s tour as Ola Aina failed to make the cut after an indifferent debut for the first team at the weekend.
Solanke more illustrious Nigeria counterparts at Chelsea, John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses are still not back from World cup break after reaching the round of 16 with Nigeria at the World Cup.
