Callum Hudson-Odoi reportedly set to switch allegiance to Ghana

Newcastle United, England 3 15

All three England players missed a penalty in the shootout versus Italy at Wembley, which resulted in the Azzurri winning the coveted trophy.

After the game, Rashford, Sancho and Saka were all subjected to disgusting racial abuse online.

The actions of a small minority highlight that there is still significant work to be done with regards to the issue of racism in English football.

Sadly, the problem doesn't appear as if it's going away anytime soon and the latest example of abuse has had a serious impact on Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi.

According to Ghana Sports Online, the 20-year-old starlet - who has represented England's senior team three times - is now seeking to switch international allegiance to Ghana, the country where his family roots lie.

It is thought that the racial abuse suffered by Rashford, Sancho and Saka is the key factor behind the young winger's decision.

Hudson-Odoi visited Ghana last month and during that time, he held a meeting with President Nana Akufo-Addo to discuss the state of football in the country.

Mustapha Ussif, the Minister of Youth and Sports, was also present in the meeting and it's believed he tried to convince the Chelsea man to play for the Black Stars in the future.
