Just ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash between Aston Villa and Everton, it was being reported that Poland had reignited their interest and were again trying to tempt fullback Matty Cash into switching his international allegiance to them as we slowly move towards the next international window.
The 24-year-old former Nottingham Forest Academy graduate, qualifies for Poland via family on his mother’s side but their previous attempts to tempt him were rebuffed as he kept an eye on his England chances.
Can’t spell but what a player 🔥

Given Gareth Southgate seems to have his unquestionable half a team of favoured right backs already in place, with games against San Marino and Albania on the horizon, they understandably feel now is a good time again to tempt Cash with international recognition, and in fairness following the Everton clash, they are only going to be more interested in him now.
What a feeling 😍😍 https://t.co/HOYHxSXXZb

The Daily Mail cover the story and quote Cash from an interview last year where Poland came up as a topic of discussion.
“My mum is actually half-Polish and speaks the language fluently. There’s been contact with my agent about playing for Poland and it’s something that I would look at.”

Those with a greater interest in England than me will already be aware that Poland are in the qualifying group for Qatar 2022, having played out a 1-1 draw earlier this month.
