Chelsea In Qatar – And Then There Were Two

With Englands loss in the match against France, three more Blues were catching a plane home, alongside Thiago Silva, with Brazil having lost the day before. Conor Gallagher has been unfortunate not to see even a minute of action, maybe next time?

That leaves the Dynamic Duo of Hakim Ziyech and Mateo Kovacic as Chelsea’s representatives in the Semi-Finals. How have they faired so far?
