    The situation regarding dual nationality players is so complicated that it's hard to speculate on his thought process. He's a proper player though, so it would be great to get him back involved with England.

    He’ll be called up to the Irish seniors by the end of the year, you watch.

    Wouldnt surprise me one bit, especially if our FA start to try and recruit him back into our setup. The Irish will end up going down the same route as the Welsh and try and secure these young kids for their future talent pool as fast as they can kick a ball.

    Am I the only one who thinks this notion used by the Welsh is unethical? I know the idea is meant to secure these kids for the future but I barely knew what I was having for tea when I was 16 never mind choosing which country to play for. It's like child trafficking.

    Is it any more or less ethical than England calling up 14yos who aren't actually eligible?

    Not that I'm endorsing either btw, there are a lot of shady practices in youth football, for shame.

    Yeah, I would agree with that, don’t think we should be calling up players that don’t qualify even if it’s a friendly game or tournament. It certainly didn’t do us any favours going into the latest U17 Championships, what an absolute farce.

    Reports saying Daniel Jinadu (West Ham - 2002) is committing to Nigeria.

    How funny would it be if England beat Ireland at their own game and explored Troy Pareott’s English heritage?

    They would’ve done this. They already do this. They’re all playing the same game.

    Fair enough. I was being a bit naive there.

    He does look a prospect. Good luck to him.

    Southampton just signed Kevin Danso from Augsburg (subject to the League's permission), who is been playing for Austria youth teams but eligible for England. He still has not played for the seniors, so he is available for England in theory.

    He has six caps for Austria, four of them competitive.

    Oh, I messed it up then, thanks. Still a homegrown (?) player.

    He was here from 6 to 16 so doesn't have the 3 years between 15 and 21 required for homegrown status.

    Really highlights how arbitrarily HG status is defined.

    Bullcrap. Not a chance maddison would swap england for a second rate nation like ireland. Why would he give up a chance to play at world cups or euros to play for probably the worst ireland team in history. Wishfull thinking on their part.

    Also add, Madison will be in the next england squad. Southgate is not a fool, he knows how good this lad is. Even the Irish on their own forums know this is bullshit. They are all saying their is less than zero chance of him switching

    Those eligibility stories are just easy clicks for the Irisih Independent. How much mileage did they get out the Rice story? Every few weeks they'd have a new claim of who he was going to declare for and when.
