Callum Hudson-Odoi reportedly ditches England for Ghana

The Champions League winner is said to have decided to play for the West African country a month after meeting President Akufo-Addo.

According to reports, Hudson-Odoi decided to wear Black Stars colours in response to racist abuse directed at England players following the Euro 2020 final.

Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, and Bukayo Saka, who all missed penalties in England’s loss to Italy, were all racially abused online following the game.

Hudson-Odoi, who had a great relationship with the trio as a Three Lions player, has chosen to represent Ghana instead.

Bismark Odoi, the son of a former Hearts of Oak player, believes he may face similar treatment if he continues to play for England, where he was born.

During his summer vacation, Hudson-Odoi travelled to Ghana, where he fell in love and paid a visit to Ghana’s first gentleman, Akufo-Addo, at the Jubilee House.
