Marvelous Nakamba Plays As Aston Villa Beat Chelsea

Zimbabwean international footballer Marvelous Nakamba was a late substitute as Aston Villa rounded off their mid-season training camp in the Middle East with a 1-0 victory over Chelsea.

The former Club Brugge defensive midfielder was introduced in the last six minutes, replacing captain John McGinn.

McGinn netted the only goal of the game in the seventh minute at Al Nahyan Stadium in Abu Dhabi, as Villa stepped up their match fitness in readiness for the return of Premier League action in two weeks’ time.

Victory for the Villans saw them lift the inaugural CBF Al Wahda Challenge Cup, closing the curtain on their trip ahead of a home-friendly fixture against Spanish side Villarreal on Thursday.

Jorginho, Marc Cucurella and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were among the starters for the Blues with the latter joined in attack by Armando Broja and Hutchinson.
