Why is Wilfried Zaha playing for Ivory Coast?

WILFRIED ZAHA would be a valuable asset to the England national team, but instead he’ll be playing for Ivory Coast this summer.

A star in the Premier League and frequently linked with a move away to some of Europe’s biggest clubs, some people may be wondering why the forward did not play a part in England’s World Cup run last year.

Last summer, CNN Sport asked the Crystal Palace star why he committed his future to Ivory Coast in 2016.

Zaha,26, responded by saying, “I was rejected from the England side”, adding that he “didn’t get picked or even get a look in for four years.”

He then went on to say, “Four years in football is a long time so there’s no regret at all.”

While he was born in Africa, it’s clear from his words last year that he only switched national allegiance because he wasn’t being selected for the England team.

Zaha has two caps for England, which he earned against Sweden and Scotland respectively in 2012 and 2013.

He also made 13 appearances for the England U21s between 2012 and 2013.

Despite appearing in two matches for the country he has lived in since the age of four, he was able to switch his national allegiance because he hadn’t played for England in a competitive match.

This would have made the forward illegible to make the switch to Ivory Coast.
