The 22-year-old has played a key role in helping the young Three Lions reach the last four of the competition, and he will hope to be fit for their semi-final tie after being taken off with a knock in the first half of the success against Poland.
Chalobah will certainly be enjoying playing regularly for his country after another frustrating campaign at Stamford Bridge, where he made just 15 appearances in all competitions with the majority of those coming from the substitutes’ bench.
The midfielder could be pushed even further down the pecking order if the club completes the signing of Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko.
Chelsea supporters were quick to show their support for Chalobah via social media, and many are hoping that he signs a new contract as they believe he can still have a big future with the Premier League champions.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
