Watch Chelsea new boy Santos score again for Brazil as he proves his worth
CHELSEA new boy Andrey Santos has scored yet again for Brazil’s Under-20 side as he continues to prove his worth following a January move to Stamford Bridge.
The 18-year-old central midfielder was one of several Blues arrivals in the January window, joining from Vasco da Gama for £18million.
But he is yet to join up with the rest of Graham Potter’s inflated squad as he is currently representing Brazil at the South American U20 Championship.
Santos, who is wearing the captain’s armband for the age group side, has already racked up five goals in the competition.
That included one in their latest game on Friday as they won 3-0 against Venezuela.
In stoppage time at the end of the game, the Chelsea man scampered onto a loose ball after Venezuela failed to deal with a long throw.
And Santos fired beyond keeper Frankarlos Cruz Benitez Gutierrez to keep up his sensational run of scoring in every game he has played at the tournament.
He has found the back of the net against Peru, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela.
Santos was rested for their other match against Paraguay.
He will be hoping for first-team minutes when he eventually arrives at Stamford Bridge.

And the departure of Jorginho will move him up the pecking order in Potter’s squad.
However, Santos will face stiff competition at the London club due to Todd Boehly’s £600M spending spree since the summer.
Midfielders Enzo Fernandez, David Datro Fofana, Carney Chukwuemeka and Denis Zakaria have all come through the door since Boehly’s takeover nine months ago.
They also have Conor Gallagher and Mason Mount available to play in the middle of the park.
Potter is still waiting for a host of midfield options to return from injury including N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
