Chelsea of England youth team player, Faustino Anjorin has hinted that he and his colleagues in The Blues’ under-18 squad selection were not completely satisfied with their 7-0 thrashing of Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Youth Cup, megasportsarena.com reports.
The mammoth victory saw the London club’s youngsters qualify for the competition’s quarter-finals, with Anjorin scoring one of the goals in brilliant fashion, but the Nigerian-born midfielder disclosed that their plan before kick-off had been to ensure they win with double figures, hence the sort of disappointment his colleagues had that they could make it only seven.
Nonetheless, the England under-19 international, who captained his team for the encounter, said he was happy to make hay five minutes before halftime, when he waltzed his way past several Wolves’ players and clipped the ball delicately over the onrushing goalkeeper.
That stunning effort gave Chelsea a 3-0 lead, and Anjorin explained after the match that he had to go for goal when he spotted gaps in the Wolves defence, but insists they should have notched in more goals after the break, as their coach, Ed Brand told them at half time to go full throttle.
“We actually wanted double figures because that’s the Chelsea mentality, to push and never ease up. The message from Ed at half-time was to keep fighting and keep on going. Even though it took us a few minutes in the second half, we did that,” Anjorin concluded.
