Disgruntled Man Utd Star To Pick African Nation Over England

Aaron Wan-Bissaka will reportedly commit his international future to DR Congo if he is overlooked for the upcoming England squad.

The 23-year-old was born in England but is of Congolese descent, and has represented both countries at youth level, featuring once for DR Congo's U20 side before playing for England at U20 and U21 level.

Gareth Southgate is expected to name his squad for the upcoming internationals on 18 March, which many believe is the last chance for Wan-Bissaka and others to impress the England boss ahead of the upcoming UEFA European Championship.

According to The Athletic, though, Wan-Bissaka could commit to DR Congo should he once again miss out on a Three Lions call-up.

The United right-back faces strong competition in his position for England, with the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kieran Trippier, Reece James and Kyle Walker all competing for that spot.

Wan-Bissaka has featured 36 times for the Red Devils so far this campaign, scoring twice and assisting another three goals for his side.

He is one of several Europe-based stars of African descent who could still play for certain CAF nations at senior level – you can see of them below:
