President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr Mustapha Ussif, to explore the possibility of having Ghanaian-born Chelsea footballer Callum Hudson-Odoi switch nationality and play for the Black Stars.

The President said this when Hudson-Odoi paid a courtesy call on him at the Jubilee House on Monday, 7 June 2021.

Hudson-Odoi plays as a winger.

During his time with Chelsea’s academy, Hudson-Odoi was part of the squads which won the U18 Premier league in 2017 as well as the back-to-back FA Youth Cup titles.

In January 2018, he was handed his senior debut opportunity and has since made over 90 appearances for Chelsea.

Hudson-Odoi also enjoyed considerable success at the youth level for England.

He was part of the squad which ended as runners-up in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship and which won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in the same year.

In March 2019, he became the youngest player to debut in a competitive match for England in the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic.
