Chelsea-bound Kendry makes history at U20 World Cup

Footage stemming from the U20 World Cup may well pique attentions across the fanbase of Premier League giants Chelsea late on Saturday night.

This comes owing to the exploits of teenage sensation Kendry Paez.

For those who may have missed it, Kendry’s name took its place centre stage in the headlines in west London earlier this year.

This came upon widespread confirmation surfacing in the media that Chelsea head beaten out the competition, to secure a verbal agreement with Independiente del Valle over the signing of the midfielder.

Kendry is widely regarded to be one of the finest up-and-coming talents in South America, and found the net on his senior debut for Independiente back in February, at just 15 years of age.

And, as alluded to above, late on Friday, the prodigious starlet has turned heads across the globe once more.

Afforded a starting berth in Ecuador’s group stage meeting with Fiji, Kendry set into motion an eventual nine-goal rout, courtesy of his country’s opener.

And, in the process, the midfielder made history, establishing himself as the youngest player to ever find the net at the U20 World Cup.
