Sierra Leonean-born Chalobah gets first senior England call

Sierra Leone-born and Watford City midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah has been named for the first time in the senior England squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia early next month.

This means Chalobah, 22, first England call up will now finally end any hopes of him ever playing for Sierra Leone his country of birth.

It’s no surprise as Gareth Southgate thinks the Chelsea Academy product could provide the additional quality to the centre of his side.

Chalobah will be part of Southgate’s 28-man squad for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Malta on 1 September and Slovakia three days later.

A disappointing news for Sierra Leone soccer fans who were expecting that one day, Chalobah will don the Sierra Leone national colours.

  1. I think there’s something rubbish going on to the SLFA. What really wrong in our country mama Sierra Leone that any good potiential player will not play for Sierra Leone? SLFA try to help our football team to qualify for the Africa Nations Cup and the World Cup at least other nationalist will rush to come home to play for mama Salone, their Country. But SLFA, it’s also good to build the new young talented footballers base in the Country ready to lift their flag up to show the world that there are talented people in Sierra Leone. Try to do a good job, spend the money for good to gain more money, stop keeping it without making useful things that will bring development for you and your country mama Sierra Leone. Since you’ve chosen to be leader, all you have to do sacrifice that will bring development at your own time and forever you have the praised and your symbol remained stamp in the history of football and even your children will received the blessings. Thanks
