Former England star, Bobby Zamora has cautioned trio, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tariq Lamptey and Eddie Nketiah on playing for Ghana’s Black Stars.
The English-born of Trinidad and Tobago descent says the youngsters will eventually get their chances for playing for the three Lions and shouldn’t switch nationality to play for Ghana.
According to him, he waited for his time to come and played for the English national team at the right time.
“My dad is from Trinidad and Tobago, and they actually came calling when I was at Brighton. I considered, but Peter Taylor had just come in, who had connections with England, and he said ‘listen, don’t jump just yet, you’ve got the ability and you can do this’,” he told Express Sport.
“So I actually waited and got into the Under-21s, and I felt that I was good enough to play for the national team. So I bided my time to see if I could get in that England squad, and I finally did, and it was probably one of the best moments of my life.
“For the guys mentioned, they’re so close and so young. I think it’s probably a bit too early for them to jump ship. All of those guys have got the ability to make a real difference and make a big impact for England.”
Tariq Lamptey was spotted at the Cape Coast stadium on Wednesday evening when Ghana took on Madagascar in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
