Manchester united right back Aaron Wan Bissaka may have dropped a major clue as to where his international future lies after dropping the England flag on his Instagram bio and replacing it with Democratic Republic of Congo flag.The right back is eligible for the two countries at senior level having represented both at the youth level.
Despite moving from Crystal palace to Manchester united in 2019,he still appears to find himself away down the pecking order in the three lions ranks. Right back is particularly competitive spot for England with Trent Alexander Arnold, Reece James, Kyle Walker and Kierran Trippier all appearing to be ahead of him currently in Gareth Southgate standings.
Born in Croydon London, the full back represented the DRC at the U-20 level in 2015 and actually played against England's U-17 in a losing effort in his sole appearance for the Leopards. He subsequently represented England at the U-21 level and represented the three lions at the U-21 Euro's in 2019 where he made one appearance for Aidy Bouthroyds side.
In August 2019,the defender was called up to the senior side by Southgate, but didn't appear in either Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kosovo or Bulgaria after missing out on the fixture due to injury.
Even under the new rules on nationality switch ratified by Fifa last month an appearance in either match would have prevented him from representing the Congo in the future as he would have been 21 already at the time of his competitive outing for the three lions. Should the 22 years old opt to represent DRC at the time he would have to compete with the likes of Jordan Ikoko, Glody Ngonda and Djuma Shabana for the right back slot but could have a key role to play as the Central Africans look to reach the Africa Cup of Nation and their first world cup since 1974.
