Qatar 2022: Callum Hudson-Odoi finally chooses Ghana Black Stars

Callum Hudson-Odoi is considering switching his international allegiance from England to Ghana, according to GOAL.com.

After defeating Nigeria in two legs on March 29, Ghana qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The 21-year-old hasn’t played for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions in more than two years and has rejected recent call-ups to Lee Carsley’s Under-21s squad.

Despite having represented England and won all three caps in competitive matches, Hudson-Odoi is still eligible to switch nations.

This comes after a FIFA rule change in September 2020 that allowed players with no more than three caps to switch if they did it before reaching 21.

Hudson-Odoi has dual nationality, despite being born in London, courtesy to his father, Bismark, who played football for Hearts of Oak in Ghana.

Hudson-Odoi has spent time in Ghana on vacation in recent years, including in January 2022 and last summer.

When asked if he was considering switching, he answered, “At the end of the day, we will wait till that time arrives.”

Hudson-Odoi was summoned by President Nana Akufo-Addo, and he is alleged to have met with the Ghanaian Football Association.
