Tristan Nydam Speaks On Decision To Snub Zimbabwe-Warriors For England

Zimbabwe-born and Ipswich Town whizzkid, Tristan Nydam revealed his intentions to play for England's Three Lions despite efforts by Zimbabwe to convince him to feature for Warriors.

The 18-year-old midfieder, who is reportedly on English Premier League side, Arsenal radar, disclosed frustrations he went through in trying to reclaim his Zimbabwean citizenship seven years ago but all in vain.

In a conversation with England-based Zimbabwean footballer, Bradley Pritchard who has had a huge influence in convincing UK-based youngsters to play for Zimbabwe, published in The Standard newspaper, Nydam rejected Warriors proposal alleging that he doesn't hold a Zimbabwean passport.

"I don't hold a Zimbabwean passport", said Nydam

"When I applied to renew my expired one seven years ago, they denied me. Even under the old Constitution, as long as I am or was under 18 years old I was entitled to hold dual nationality. At the time I did not even hold dual nationality.

"Going forward, it's going to be England and the three Lions," he said.

Nydam was recently awarded with another contract extension at Ipswich Town that will see the youngster at the Tractors until 2020-21 season.
