Mahrez boot cleaner quits England, makes international decission

DATE: 25.11.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Riyad Mahrez, Matt Elliott, Yohan Benalouane, Ade Akinbiyi and Jeff Schlupp are examples of foxes or former foxes to quit your native nation and play for another

Players with parents or grand parents from other nations, can switch and play for them. The latest addition to the group of such players is Admiral Muskwe. The youngster made his full international debut for Zimbabwe, coming on as a sub against Lesotho earlier this month.

118 players to date has represented Leicester City at full international level, and many of them playing for nations that are the home country of parents or grand parents.

Muskwe is a key player in the development team and more and more football scouts and national teams are following up on players playing in the U.23's. The 19 year old Muskwe, born 21.08.1998, is seen as a great talent and also been involved in the first team.

He made his first team debut, coming on as a sub in the 2016 summer friendly v. Oxford, and is a pacy flank player with great technique. He will be interesting to follow and as we all know, Claude Puel is known for bringing in younger players.

The fact that Muskwe is born in England and still a very young player, makes it interesting to see why he decided to quit his international chance with England, and make a decission to play for Zimbabwe.

He could make a switch back to England in the future, since his debut was in a friendly. He was the 118 player to play at full international level representing Leicester City. He was the first Leicester City player to represent Zimbabwe.

The country is not known for producing great footballers, but a few names are there to be recognised. Peter Ndlovu, Bruce Grobbelaar and Bobby Chalmers. All players to have played against Leicester City in their careers.

City toured South Africa and Rhodesia (previous name of Zimbabwe) in the early 60's and played the Rhodesian national team as one of the games on the trip. Chalmers played, City won 4-3.

Bobby Chalmers spent his entire professional career in the (White's only league) NFL of South Africa, scoring almost as many goals as games in more than 200 appearances for Durban City, Durban United and Maritzburg FC.

Muskwe could be the next big football name of Zimbabwe, making his full international debut at the age of 19. Time will be on his side as he prepare for more internationals and playing regularly in the Leicester City U.23 set up.

Muskwe is also the one having experienced cleaning the boots of Riyad Mahrez, and might be encouraged by him to see progression as Mahrez has done.

The young Admiral has also been voted Academy Player of the Year at Leicester City, so expectations to break into the first team.
