Noni Madueke Of Psv Eindhoven Is Aiming For A Place In Englands World Cup Squad In 2022

Noni Madueke of PSV Eindhoven has stated that he hopes to be called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar next winter.
Last season, the 19-year-old winger had a breakthrough season with the Dutch club, scoring nine goals and registering eight assists, and he has started this season with four goals in his first four games.
Madueke earned his first Three Lions Under-21 cap in March, and while the Barnet-born teenager is also eligible to play for Nigeria, he has stated that he wants to play in next year’s World Cup.
Noni Madueke, an England Under-21 international, is aiming for a place in the senior team at the 2022 World Cup. The teenager scored four goals in four games for Dutch club PSV Eindhoven this season. He told The Sun: ‘You never know how football goes.’
Every day, I try to take it as it comes.
My club is bread and butter.
‘It would be fantastic if I could be at the World Cup in 15 months if I’m winning games with my club.’
‘For the time, there has been no contact from them (England).’
‘I don’t believe the time for those decisions to be made is now.’ Madueke, who can also play for Nigeria, has spent the last three seasons with the Dutch club. Madueke isn’t the only young English player to consider a decision between Southgate’s Three Lions and Nigeria in recent years, with Bukayo Saka having a similar choice before his ascent to prominence for England.
After a number of good performances for Arsenal, the 19-year-old was called up to Southgate’s team last autumn, and his string of Three Lions games towards the end of 2020 ruled him out of transferring to Nigeria later in his career.
Saka would go on to star in England’s Euro 2020 campaign earlier this summer, with Madueke recently idolizing the Arsenal midfielder.
Madueke aspires to be like England’s Bukayo Saka, who starred at Euro 2020 this summer. ‘We used to play against each other all the time in the young teams,’ Madueke said of Saka.
He was always a fantastic player, especially in front of goal.
‘He had no trouble with the game.’
He was like if he were a fish in water.
I’m pleased with what he’s doing now.
‘On the outside, England appeared to have a terrific balance and a great team spirit.’
They made the entire country proud.
The 19-year-old believes England did themselves proud at the Euro 2020 tournament in the summer. ‘It was terrible how it ended, but it was a strong platform to build on and strive to win the next World Cup,’ he says. Madueke was on Tottenham’s books before signing a three-year contract with PSV in 2018, despite a similar offer from Manchester United’s school.
During the 2019-20 season, he made his first professional appearances for the senior side, and his PSV record presently stands at 13 goals in 36 appearances.
In recent weeks, the winger has been linked with summer moves to Premier League clubs Leicester City and Crystal Palace.
