Reports suggest that England manager Gareth Southgate is contemplating inviting Manchester United sensation Kobbie Mainoo for the upcoming international break.
British journalist Graeme Bailey has indicated that Southgate and his technical team have included the young talent in their plans and are aiming to call him up for the Three Lions’ matches against Brazil and Belgium in March.
Mainoo has been enjoying a breakthrough season at Manchester United, having featured in nine Premier League games since his debut against Everton in November 2023.
The youngster grabbed headlines with an extraordinary winning goal in Manchester United’s 4-3 victory over Wolves.
Subsequent reports have suggested that the Ghana Football Association is keen on persuading the Ghanaian-born player, who was raised in the UK, to commit his international future to Ghana and represent the Black Stars.
“The Ghana Football Association is interested in monitoring, attracting, and persuading all eligible talents for its various national teams,” Randy Abbey, a member of the executive council of the Ghana FA, told The Times.
Kobbie Mainoo has been through the ranks of England, playing for the England U19s and making six appearances.
