Benik Afobe talks up DR Congo call-up

Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe is considering representing DR Congo despite the fact he has played for England U-21 set-up.

Afobe’s England youth career is 11 years long as the Bournemouth January signing had captained the Under-12s and enjoyed successful spells with all other youth teams as well.

He won the Victory Shield with the England U-16 set-up, and represented the country for the U-17s, U-19s and most recently U-21s.

As the Democratic Republic of Congo national team are interested in selecting the former Wolves man, the 23-year-old striker has revealed that he will seriously consider the option of accepting the call.

“We’ll see in the next international break what will happen, but I know they are interested in me, and it’s something my family, my agent and myself are going to have to sit down and talk about”, he told Sky Sports.

As an England hopeful, Benik Afobe has an important decision ahead of him, which could ultimately ruin his every chance of possibly making it to the senior team and into the 2016 European Championship finals in France.

The 23-year-old forward has joined Bournemouth in January for a £10 million fee from Wolves and has already netted twice for Cherries this season.

England have been drawn in Group B for the Euro 2021 finals together with Russia, Wales and Slovakia.
