Ugbo has represented England at under-17 and under-20 level. In June 2017, Ugbo also scored once in three appearances as England’s under-20 side won the Toulon Tournament.

“The paperwork is not quite in order yet, but my agent is working on it,” Ugbo told Belgium media outlet HLN.

“Playing a World Cup is every footballer’s dream, isn’t it?”

The former Roda player has scored 10 goals in 16 league appearances for Cercle Brugge this season.
