Addressing issues concerning whether he would love to play for the Black Stars or not at the Alisa Hotel in Accra on Sunday, Callum explained why he decided to play for the English team by saying:

“I think obviously when you’re young, you have the opportunity to play for England throughout all the years, from under 15 to under 16 all the way up. When they obviously gave me the opportunity to come I was in the country already. It’s something that I already had in my mind, set on already playing for England.”

Speaking about his chances of playing for Ghana or better still switch to represent the Red, Gold, Green, Callum did not make a definite statement by said he hopes so since he can’t determine what the future holds for him.

“So it was the thing obviously choosing Ghana or England, and at the end of the day, I said I always had the right people around me who always advise me – what’s right, what’s wrong. England came and I said yeah, let me go and play for my country. But I said Ghana is my home as well, so we’ll see, we’ll see. You’ll never know, so,” he said whilst giggling. 

Callum Hudson-Odoi is a 2021 Champions League winner with Chelsea and has also played for England’s U16, U17, U18, U19, U21 and senior teams. Remember he has also won the Europa League with Chelsea.
