Hudson-Odoi who just lift the UCL title with Chelsea has put out an update concerning his international future.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has kept his door open for a potential return to Ghana for his international future despite making three appearance for England.
Odoi was born in England. However, he’s been snubbed by Gareth Southgate the England coach for the upcoming Euro Championship.
Has it is done, with three senior appearances already for England. One more appearance for England will seal his possible return to Ghana team, as that will permanently tie him to Gareth Soutgate’s side- England.
Hudson-Odoi is currently on holiday in Ghana, and he delivered his speech at an event when asked about his international future plans. The Joy Sports reported;
“I think obviously when you’re young, you have the opportunity to play for England throughout all the years, from under 15 to under 16 all the way up.
“When they obviously gave me the opportunity to come I was in the country already. It’s something that I already had in my mind, set on already playing for England.”
“So it was the thing obviously choosing Ghana or England, and at the end of the day I said I always had the right people around me who always advise me – what’s right, what’s wrong. England came and I said ‘Yeah, let me go and play for my country.
“But I said Ghana is my home as well, so we’ll see, we’ll see. You’ll never know, so,” he said whilst giggling.
Obviously for Odoi, as per his current international match appearance status, any possible application for a switch can only be made after November 17 next year, just ahead of the 2022 World Cup.
Hudson-Odoi’s father Bismark played for Ghana Premier League leaders Hearts of Oak during his time in the West African country and his brother Bradley represented Ghana at U20 level according to the Goal.
