Wilfried Zaha pledges future to Ivory Coast

Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has submitted a request to Fifa to play all future international games for Ivory Coast.

Zaha was born in Abidjan but grew up in England and has won two caps for The Three Lions. However, because he has only featured in friendly games, he is allowed to switch his allegiance.

If he does so, the 24-year-old will be eligible to play in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. The tournament is hosted by Gabon and kicks off on January 14. If Ivory Coast are successful, Zaha could miss up to six weeks of the Premier League season.

The Ivorian Football Federation released a statement on Sunday that revealed Zaha had sent Fifa a letter requesting a nationality change.

Palace boss Alan Pardew believes that the winger has been pushed into this decision by those around him. According to BBC Sport, he said Zaha had probably been “pushed forward, probably by his agent or people around him” to make the change but he can also “understand his frustration” at not being picked for England.

He also praised his young forward:

“There aren’t many other English players who can beat players like he does in the Premier League. Some do, but they’re not English.”

Zaha’s first England cap came in a 4-2 friendly defeat by Sweden in 2012. He came on as an 84th-minute substitute. He also came off the bench for 15 minutes in The Three Lions 3-2 victory against Scotland at Wembley in August 2013.

England are next in action in March 2017 when the next round of World Cup qualifiers are played. Since Zaha hasn’t featured at all in the last three years for England, missing two tournaments, it’s unlikely that his absence will be costly.

However, Palace fans will not be too happy that one of their players could miss up to six weeks of the Premier League season.
