10 Players Who Are Still Eligible For African Countries

With Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe still able to represent his African country of birth, here are some more talented footballers who remain eligible to play for African nations!

Click through the gallery above to see 10 players in Europe who are still eligible to play for African countries, according to Transfermarkt!

Tuanzebe put in a solid performance in the Red Devils' 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, despite it being his first appearance for United in more than 10 months.

The 22-year-old has had a tough time with injuries in 2020, but has now made a case for himself to become a regular in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans. At senior international level, the centre-back is still uncapped, and can choose between England and DR Congo.

Having been born in the Central African country, Tuanzebe is unsurprisingly able to represent them, although he has played for the Three Lions at youth level. If he is to continue in United's first-team plans, there is every chance Gareth Southgate will consider him for his senior team ahead of the 2021 European Championship.

His club teammate Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who was born in England, is also still able to play for DR Congo at international level, while Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, who is the all-time record goalscorer for England at U21 level with 14 goals, is eligible for Ghana.

The 21-year-old might need to start thinking about the path he wants to take at senior international level, especially considering he has the likes of Harry Kane, Dominic-Calvert Lewin, Tammy Abraham and Danny Ings ahead of him for England.

Bukayo Saka, his Gunners colleague, made his debut for England in an international friendly in the recent international break, which means he is still eligible for Nigeria.

Olympique Lyon forward Moussa Dembele, 24, is yet to get a chance in the France senior team, and is able to represent Mali. Despite scoring loads of goals at youth level for the European nation, he unfortunately looks no closer to entering Didier Deschamp's plans – click through the gallery above to see some more Europe-based players who could still choose to play for African nations!
