UK-born Ghanaian Callum Hudson-Odoi has finally chosen England over Ghana.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on BBC, Hudson-Odoi has been called-up to the England squad for the first time for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro.
The Chelsea winger's call-up will be a big blow to coach Kwesi Appiah as he was looking forward to lure the youngster to play for Ghana.
Hudson-Odoi has featured in 19 games for Chelsea this season, scoring five times, but is yet to start a Premier League match.
Callum Hudson-Odoi chose England over Ghana having previously represented England from Under-16 to Under-19 level, winning the Under-17 World Cup in 2017.
"It's been a crazy experience but I'm delighted to get the call and it's a nice feeling to be here as well," Hudson-Odoi said.
"I thought the manager [Under-21 manager Aidy Boothroyd] was joking.
"I was shocked and then when I heard that I actually had to go over [to England's training base at St George's Park], I couldn't believe it. I was delighted.
"It's a dream come true. Now I've got to work hard, enjoy every moment and keep working to just hopefully make an impact when I get the opportunity," a delighted Hudson-Odoi added.
England host the Czechs at Wembley on Friday, March 22,2019 and will play away in Montenegro on Monday, March 25, 2019.
Hudson-Odoi's father, Bismark Odoi, was a former Ghanaian international. He played for Accra Hearts of Oak.
