Elegant defender whose confident appearances belie his relative inexperience.

Omeruo has played at right-back for the vast majority of his club career, but ahead of the 2013 AFCON, seeing something that other managers hadn’t, Keshi installed the Chelsea youngster as a centre-back.

The defender became an important component of the side, so much so that he was badly missed when he was removed through injury during the Confederations Cup last summer.

The 20-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Middlesbrough but has recently signed a long-term contract with his parent club.

He is set for a long career at the top of the sport.
