Man United Defender Wan-Bissaka Set To Snub England In Favour Of DR Congo 

Man United Defender Wan-Bissaka Set To Snub England In Favour Of DR Congo 

Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is set to snub England as he considers representing the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Wan-Bissaka, 23, has not yet been capped by England boss Gareth Southgate due to the wealth of options he has in the position.

And according to The Athletic, the fact that he is continually being overlooked is reportedly making him re-think his England future.

If Wan-Bissaka is not selected in Southgate’s side’s upcoming matches at the end of March, it is thought he will decide to represent Congo.

The former Crystal Palace man played for both England and Congo at youth level, but is yet to play senior international football.

He was picked by Southgate for England’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kosovo and Bulgaria in August, but pulled out of the squad due to a back injury.

Reports of Wan-Bissaka potentially snubbing England come just one week after 18-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala opted to represent Germany despite featuring for the Three Lions throughout his youth career.

The winger, 17, was born in Stuttgart but spent much of his childhood in England, playing for Chelsea’s academy.

Most recently, he turned out for England Under-21s and scored in November’s 5-0 rout of Albania.

However, an elevation to the senior Germany side is on the cards ahead of next month’s internationals and he has now agreed to represent the 2014 World Cup winners.

England’s latest squad for their games against San Marino, Albania and Poland will be announced on March 18.

    Correct man.
    Saka, Eze, Adarabioyo, how far?
    Although, I don’t blame you guys too much. If our house was in better order, perhaps the decision would have been easier for you.

    If any country in Africa were to be in the position to win the world cup, going by the number of actual world cup winners/medalists they have produced for other nations,it has got to be the Congolese.
    But the fact that they even struggle to get to the medal zone of AFCON is a testament to the fact that playing personnel alone is not enough.
    We were all just being emotional….but the Old man was right. It would take a miracle of monumental proportions to win the World cup. Any coach that comes and promises Africa that trophy in the next 20yrs is a bigger liar than our politicians…not with CAF still unable to ensure its matches are played on the best grade of soccer pitches across the continent.

    Players want to play for colonizers country if they are born there or born to a parent from Europe. Wanting to play for England, France, Belgium, Netherlands and etc. But majority of the teams are crowded with talented players that they cant even make it to the bench. Players want to play for international competitions, especially the world cup, coming 2022. But players switch allegiance later in life like in mid 20s, 25, 26, 27 years old or later.

    Here are a list of players who recently made switches of international teams.
    Willy Boly Wolverhampton 30 born in France with Ivory Coast background
    Michail Antonio West Ham United 30 born in England with Jamaican background, recently he said he wants to help Jamaica qualify for next world cup. Abdoulaye Doucouré Everton 28 born in France with Mali background. I remember watching a game and they mentioned he got called up which was confirmed by commentator. But to be fair getting called up and actually attending and playing the game are different things. Adama Traore born in Spain with Mali background got called up by Mali and Spain at the same time, and went to play for Spain.
    Some players get called up don’t don’t play, just be on the bench and that don’t count towards appearing or cap if i’m right.
    Cyriel Dessers 26 born to a Belgium father and Nigerian father who typical Nigerians keep advocating and advertising mixed/biracial players to play for Nigeria did not make the Belgium team. Side note: I remember reading that David Alaba wanted to play for se but was told they were focusing on home based players.
    Kevin Akpoguma 25 born to a Nigerian (Urhobo) father and German mother switched to Nigeria like fast, like overnight shipping fast. The last time he played for Germany was in 2017 Germany u21. Players switch national teams as a last resort to get into teams for international competitions.

    So all the fake agent crybabies here complaining about Eze and Lookman and or Adarabioyo will just have to wait and it may or may not happen.

    At the end of the day Rohr is just going to experiment with players even in the most serious of games. The lineups are never the same, every session of games its a new recruit of players but not what fans expected. No solid goal keeper is just one of many issues. Olayinka in after a goal scoring draw against Barcelona last year hasn’t been seen since. Josh Maja change to Nigeria because I read Rohr wanted him to has only been called once. And a bunch loads of Nigerian players with 4 appearances or less, Olarenwaju Kayode scored 4 goals in 5 europa league games like come on! The talent is there, just the recruiting is just awful, something deeper between coach and higher ups.
