Who is Yunus Musah and could he have played for England at The World Cup?

THE World Cup is upon us, and Gareth Southgate has a large pool of talented players to choose from, but could teenage superstar Yunus Musah have been one of them?

Each country is allowed to bring 26 players on the plane to Qatar with the England manager yet to announce his final selection as he looks to whittle down a 55-man preliminary squad.

Players in contention will be hoping to impress in their final club matches before the tournament gets underway on November 21.

Some players, such as Yunus Musah, had the option to play for more than one country at Qatar.

Who is Yunus Musah?

Yunus Musah is a 19-year-old USA midfielder who plays for La Liga side Valencia.

Musah started his career at Arsenal but was moved on in 2019 after seven years at the academy.

The wonder-kid has since made over 80 appearances for ‘Los Che’ and become the youngest non-Spanish player to score for the club.

The Gunners may regret letting the creative midfielder leave North London, as might England.

Could he have played for England?

Musah was born in New York, where his mum was on holiday at the time.

He then moved to Italy with his Ghanaian parents until the age of nine, before residing in London.

Musah represented England at several U21 levels

Musah represented England at under 15, U16, U17 and U18 level, captaining the Young Lions along the way.

But in 2020, the USA snapped him up for the national side. Musah now looks set to play against England in the group stages.
