Former Dutch Midfielder George Boateng Advises Hudson-Odoi To Play For Ghana
Former Netherlands midfielder George Boateng has advised England winger Callum Hudson-Odoi to change nationality and play for Ghana.
The Aston Villa youth team coach believes the Chelsea winger will have a better international career with the Black Stars than the Three Lions.
Hudson-Odoi was snubbed by England coach Gareth Southgate for Euro 2020, leaving him with slim chances of making it with the European countrhy.
“My advise would be that if you don’t see a future there for you to play regular football, because let’s not make a mistake here,…” Boateng said on Citi TV’s the Tracker Show on Monday.
“Hudson Odoi is an outstanding World Class footballer and he is only going to get better and it will be a shame if he only ends up having 5 or 6 caps for England and doesn’t make a final tournament like a World Cup or European Championship ever in his career.
“But there is the possibility of representing Ghana and playing at the World Cup stage in a team with top class players and if he plays for Ghana, it will send out a message to many other players, who would want to play for Ghana.”
