 The future in England is deadlocked, making a player feel confused about changing his shirt color.

England have a lot of top-class players in attack. Except for the default positions for Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, … other players have to fight fiercely to win the trust of coach Gareth Southgate. 

There are many cases where they are not even given the opportunity to “eat” and feel stuck before their future on the Three Lions. Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi is one of those faces in such predicament.

The 21-year-old player has had 3 caps for England, the last time being in the EURO 2020 qualifier against Kosovo in November 2019. That’s why he was not used by Southgate, so the Chelsea player started to weigh. Remind to change the team shirt color.

 Hudson-Odoi can give up the England shirt.

By law, before the age of 21, players are allowed to change to a nationality they can represent as long as they do not play more than 3 matches (including friendly) for their current team, and none of these matches. it belongs to the finals of the World Cup or the continental cup tournaments

This means that Hudson-Odoi will be eligible to change colors for the national team in the context of the World Cup taking place from November 21 to December 18. Ghana, a World Cup representative, is the option for Hudson-Odoi because his father is Ghanaian.

If Hudson-Odoi decides to give up the England shirt, the Chelsea player will have a great opportunity to attend the World Cup, which he hardly thinks about when still choosing the Three Lions.
