Africa's finest take on Chelsea legends

How would you fare against some of Chelsea’s finest former players?

That was the challenge facing some of Africa’s best young footballers last week, when they took on a team coached by Eddie Newton featuring Dennis Wise, Michael Essien and Celestine Babayaro at Cobham.

The Africa XI squad was made up of talent from across the continent and flown over to London courtesy of club partners Shield and Rexona. The players enjoyed a tour of Stamford Bridge before receiving advice from David Luiz, Victor Moses and N’Golo Kante ahead of the big game.

Watch the video below to see David Luiz’s words of wisdom, what the former Blues thought and to see how the game panned out.
