Conte names Ghanaian starlet Ethan Ampadu in Chelsea squad for EPL Cup today

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has revealed that young Chelsea star Ethan Ampadu will make the bench against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.
The Welsh-born of Ghanaian descent  only turned 17 last week but his career has been rapidly on the rise after joining Chelsea from Exeter City in the summer.
The teenager debuted at Exeter at the tender age of 15, making him their youngest player in history.
This week he trained with the Chelsea first team and he could make his debut for the champions in the League Cup, having earned his first international call up with Wales squad at the start of September.
"Yes [Ampadu will be included]." Conte said. "Ampadu is a young player, but I think he has good quality. He has good prospects to become a Chelsea player. He's strong physically, good technique and personality. 
"Yes, I think we have to continue to work with him and to try and improve him, to bring him to the next step. But for sure he has good prospects at Chelsea to become a Chelsea player.
"I don't think that, if your national team calls you up [Ampadu] and you are 16 years old [at the time of the call up], it puts pressure on you. You must be proud of this. But, for sure, he has to work a lot to deserve another call-up to the national team.
Ampadu is eligible to play for Wales, Ireland, England and Ghana.
