The FA Crest

Tall, athletic and comfortable in possession, the Watford man is a calm and composed player in either midfield or defence, both quick in the tackle and also able to play the ball sharply and accurately across the pitch.

A regular for England at all levels, after making his debut for the U16s in 2010 and quickly progressing through the ranks, often playing whilst still being a year younger than many of his team-mates and opponents.

In particular, Nat was a real stalwart for the U17 side as his partnership with Andre Wisdom in central defence in 2010 provided a solid foundation which allowed England to march to European U17 glory in Liechtenstein.

The following campaign saw the south Londoner captain John Peacock's U17s as they reached the Euro semi-finals and qualified for the FIFA U17 World Cup in Mexico, where they went as far as the quarter final with Chalobah again catching the eye with his classy displays in defence and midfield.

He was quickly promoted into Noel Blake's U19 squad the following season, as well as captaining Chelsea's youth team to FA Youth Cup glory in 2012 and then joining the senior squad for their triumphant trip to Munich for the Champions League Final.

He naturally progressed into the U21s squad during the 2012-13 season, after joining Watford on loan from Chelsea and attracting the attention of Stuart Pearce and his coaching staff.

Chalobah's form at Vicarage Road saw him secure his place in the squad for the U21 Euro Finals in Israel, where he was one of England's few stand-out players in what was a disappointing tournament.

He went on to be a mainstay of Gareth Southgate’s U21s featuring at another two Euro Finals in 2015 and 2017 and becoming England’s highest capped development player with almost 100 appearances to his name at all levels.

After his first senior call up in late 2017, he will now be looking to add more experience to his name.
