Greenwood To Switch International Allegiance? England Boss Responds

England manager Gareth Southgate has responded to talk that Manchester United star Mason Greenwood could switch his international allegiance.

Greenwood did not make the England squad for the 2020 UEFA European Championship, and was also snubbed for the Three Lions' upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The 19-year-old has scored in each of the opening three games for the Red Devils this season, which has led to talk about a possible switch to the Jamaican national team for the player.

However, Southgate has insisted Greenwood is committed to playing for England despite his recent snub.

"Normally, I don't get involved in the U21s but he's beyond that," the England manager said, as per The Sun.

"I want to take a little bit more control of his development internationally.

"The dual nationality is a bit of a red herring.

"He 100% wants to play for England, and there is no suggestion there is anything else there."
