Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi in action

Callum Hudson-Odoi is yet to commit his international future to the Black Stars despite reports claiming that he has chosen to switch his allegiance from England to Ghana.
According to Sky Sports
, the Chelsea winger is yet to make a final decision.
Hudson-Odoi has made three competitive appearances for England’s senior team, but meets the FIFA criteria for switching countries.
According to the report, a player can make up to three competitive appearances and still switch allegiance, so long as they were made under the age of 21 and were not at the ‘final stage’ of a tournament.
The 20-year-old failed to make Gareth Southgate’s squad for the 2020 European Championship and has thus yet to appear for England’s senior team at a major tournament.
If Hudson-Odoi were to switch, he would have to wait three years from his last cap for the Three Lions, meaning that he would be available for Ghana in November 2022 – weeks before the start of the FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar.
The former England youth international has played 98 times for the Blues and was an unused substitute in last season’s UEFA Champions League final win over Manchester City.
