VIDEO: Chelsea teenager Lewis Baker scores jaw-dropping goal in England training

Highly-rated Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker finds the top corner with a long-range effort in training for England's U21 side.

Lewis Baker, 19, received his first England under-21 call up for the games against Croatia this month, and judging by his latest effort he looks to be fitting in well.

Baker, who won Chelsea's Young Player of the Year award last season, was shown in a training video alongside Patrick Bamford and was caught in the action after firing a thunderbolt into the top left-hand corner. 

The Chelsea midfielder, who Mourinho tipped to play for the full English national team, has a reputation at Stamford Bridge as a long-shot specialist, and it seems he may extend that reputation to the national side. 

Talking to the press on Tuesday, Baker admitted that training with the best had helped him improve and he would continue to work hard in order to make the 'big step up'.

Training with the likes of [Nemanja] Matic and Cesc Fabregas at Chelsea, I'm learning from the best and that's what you want to do,'' said the 19-year-old. ''Being part of the [Chelsea] first team is a great honor for me.

''But being called up to the under-21s is another great achievement for me. It's a good step, and a big step, and I just need to keep working hard and playing the way I play.

Baker's goal can be seen at 0:38 in the Youtube video:
