Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson has been welcomed to switch his allegiance from England to Zimbabwe and represent the Warriors.
The 20-year-old has represented England, the country of his birth, at all youth levels, including 12 times for the U21 side.
However, he qualifies to play for the Warriors via his Zimbabwean father and has now been invited to represent the country by Nottingham Forest star Tendayi Darikwa, who himself switched allegiance from England to the Southern African nation in 2017.
"I think it's a personal decision that someone has to make to switch allegiances or go and represent a certain country," Darikwa told On The Whistle.

"We all know how capable Reiss is and talented he is as a footballer, and he can only improve our team and our country. We welcome Reiss to come and play for the Warriors. We'd love him to come but he needs to make the decision himself without getting pressure from people outside.
"He's played for England at youth level, if he wants to carry on playing for England, that's fine but if he wants to play for Zimbabwe, we'll welcome him together."
Having come through Arsenal's academy, Nelson has made 42 first-team appearances to date. He spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan at TSG Hoffenheim, making 23 appearances in the Bundesliga and featuring five times in the UEFA Champions League.
