Chelsea winger, Callum Hudson-Odoi continues to keep his the cards to his international career close to his chest amid reports of agreeing to play for the senior national team of Ghana, the Black Stars.

Born in England to Ghanaian parents Mr. and Mrs. Odoi. Hudson-Odoi has represented England at different Youth levels and has made 3 appearances for the England senior national team. However, he’s still eligible to represent Ghana.

Earlier this month, reports went rife that Odoi has pledged to represent Ghana after a meeting with the Technical advisor of the team, Chris Hughton.

However, in an interview with Standard Sports, Odoi revealed he’s yet to make a decision on his international career.

“I don’t know. At the end of the day, we will wait until that time comes. At the same time, I’ve just got to focus on the club until we get that far,” Odoi said when asked about the possibility of representing England at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The Ghana FA has been courting the winger who in August 2021 turned down the opportunity to play for the England under-21 team.

In the past, the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo, the FA President, Kurt Okraku and the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif have held meetings with Odoi about the possibility of representing the Ghana national team.

The 21-year old was part of the Chelsea team that recently won the Club World Cup in Dubai, making him one of the few players to have won the Club World Cup, UEFA Champions League and Europa League.

  1. The report was completely made up. Chris Hughton had not been appointed to anything when he met up with Hudson Odoi but the Ghana media decided to make hay out of it. This noise that somehow, Tariq Lamptey is interested in playing for Ghana is more wishful thinking than it is fact.

    Ghana needs to develop its league instead of hoping that foreigner raised players play for us
