Callum Hudson-Odoi in dilemma, says he can’t choose between Ghana and England


Callum Hudson-Odoi says the Ghana-England as a choice is on his mind putting him in a dilemma as he’s unable to decide which nation to represent between the two.

Hudson-Odoi have held talks with the Ghana Football Association about possibly being included in the Black Stars squad for the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar.

The Chelsea star on loan at Bayer 04 Leverkusen made three appearances for the Three Lions, but is still eligible to play for Ghana under new Fifa rules which states if those appearances occur before a player turns 21, the said player could switch allegiance.

In an interview with BBC, Hudson-Odoi was asked if talks had taken place with Ghana, Hudson-Odoi said: “Nothing I would say at the moment on camera, I would love to tell you, but I couldn’t say.

“Nothing I would say at the moment on camera, I would love to tell you, but I couldn’t say.

“At the moment it’s more just focusing on the best I can do here. You never know what will happen in the future.

“Obviously the Ghana-England situation has been on my mind for a while. But I think right now it was more of the focus of coming here, really getting myself back into shape, playing a lot of games and just feeling like myself. Right now my mind is just open.”

Hudson-Odoi’s parents are both from Ghana, and he travels there whenever he can. His last visit was in 2021 after winning the Champions League with Chelsea.
