Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi has been warned to continue his international career with England and reject the advances of Ghana.
“If Odoi is listening to me, I will advise him not to think of playing for the Black Stars. He should continue playing for England even if it is under 100, he should play for them than to play for the Black Stars. Ghana is ending career,” former Ghana international Charles Taylor said on Angel TV.
Under Fifa’s updated rules on eligibility, Hudson-Odoi will be able to switch allegiance to Ghana in November next year should he not add any more appearances to his current three caps for England.
Meanwhile, Hudson-Odoi hinted earlier this month that he may switch to Ghana.
“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,” Hudson-Odoi said.
“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.”
