Crystal Palace winger, Wilfried Zaha, has been named in Cote d’Ivoire’s provisional squad for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Gabon.
Zaha’s inclusion followed his decision to switch international allegiance from England to the West African nation, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
The 24-year-old was born in Cote d’Ivoire but has two England caps, playing in friendlies against Sweden in November 2012 and Scotland the following year.
Manchester United defender, Eric Bailly, has also been called up to the 24-man squad by French coach Michel Dussuyer.
The coach also called up veteran forward, Salomon Kalou, who is set to appear in his fifth Nations Cup.
