Ethan Ampadu was hulled off the pitch with an injury playing for Wales against Spain on Thursday night. The Chelsea star was replaced in the 50th minute due to the knee injury. Ampadu was making his fifth international appearance for Wales and played against Chelsea teammate Alvaro Morata and Ceasar Azpilicueta.
The La Roja team trashed Ryan Giggs’ team 4-1 in Cardiff despite featuring a second eleven. Ampadu seemed to land on the wrong footing after a challenge and went down injured, prompting Morata and Azpilicueta to jog over to the Wales international and check their Chelsea teammate. The Chelsea duo looked concerned for the Wales international but the midfielder left the pitch with assistance.
Ampadu has been impressive for national team though the 18yr old is yet to feature in Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea team in the current season. The best the defender have enjoyed is a substitute appearance in the 1-0 victory over Vidi FC in the Europa league home game.
Chelsea resume club action on the 20th of October when the welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge in what will be another big test for Maurizio Sarri. The Blues sit joint top with league leaders Manchester City with 20 points from their opening eight games.
