Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi urged to continue his allegiance with the England national team

Former Black Stars midfielder Charles Tylor has encouraged Chelsea’s Cullum Hudson-Odoi to choose England over Ghana with regards to his international allegiance.

Born in England by Ghanaian parents, Hudson-Odoi is eligible to play for one of the two countries despite making three appearances for the Three Lions.

The 20-year-old recently opened his door for the West African giant, admitting he is willing to switch allegiance and even going ahead to meet Ghana’s president Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, Minister of sports, Mustapha Ussif and GFA president Kurt Okraku.

With news circulating that the Champions League winner is going to quit England and play for Ghana, Charles Tylor has urged the Chelsea man never to consider playing for the West African saying: Hudson-Odoi must not consider playing for Ghana, but must focus his all attention on representing the Three Lions.

Speaking on Angel TV, the ex Heart of Oak and Kotoko star said: “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.

Hudson-Odoi will have to wait for three years, should he opt to switch allegiance from England to Ghana, as FIFA rules on eligibility clearly stipulate that a player with a senior cap for one nation will have to wait for three years from his last international appearance.

The Black Stars have also set eyes on Brighton and Hove Albion defender Tariq Lamptey, Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah and Watford winger Kwadwo Baah, who all currently play for England at youth level.
