‘We will wait until that time comes’ – Hudson-Odoi undecided between England and Ghana

‘We will wait until that time comes’ – Hudson-Odoi undecided between England and Ghana

Chelsea and England youth international Callum Hudson-odoi has remained tight-lipped on his international career regarding the choice between Ghana and England.

The Chelsea winger has been capped by England before but was not involved in any competitive games before his 21st birthday which allows him to switch his allegiance to Ghana.

And having rejected several calls to join the English under-21 side in recent times, the bells are sounding had and he could potentially line up for the Black Stars in Qatar should Ghana be able to well navigate the Nigerian challenge.

However, the English youth international is not moved by the pressure to reveal his choice as he still has time on his side to make a better decision.

When asked about his future in international football following his latest success with Chelsea in Abu Dhabi where they beat Palmeiras to win the Club World Cup, he opted to keep it open.

He said, “Hopefully. I don’t know. At the end of the day, we will wait until that time comes,” in response to the question if he would be playing for England or Ghana at the World Cup in 2022.

Odoi has been overlooked by England manager Gareth Southgate who has used his colleagues such as Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden in the English team, yet relegating the winger to the under-21s, prompting him to turn down several calls to the side.

Ghana meanwhile, has been keen and has reportedly held several discussions with him including the latest one in Accra with newly appointed Technical Advisor to the Black Stars, Chris Hughton in a bid to turn his attention to the Black Stars.
