Eddie Nketiah has finally made his England debut after coming on in the second-half of the Three Lions’ international friendly against Australia.
The 24-year-old replaced Ollie Watkins in the 1-0 victory over the Socceroos to slightly end Ghana’s hopes of convincing him to switch his nationality.
Nketiah played in the last 18 minutes of the game as Watkins’ goal was what decided the game.
This is the second time Nketiah received a senior England international call-up, the first in September without playing a minute.
“England debut at Wembley, thank you God,” wrote the Arsenal striker on social media.
Black Stars head coach Chris Hughton was optimistic about getting Nketiah and Callum Hudson-Odoi to switch nationality, but the chances are slim now for the Arsenal man.
Hughton is in Charlotte with the Black Stars as the team prepares for the international friendly against Mexico on Sunday.
