His game-winning goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers showcased his potential, with the English youth player displaying composure and skill.

Mainoo’s inclusion in Manchester United’s starting XI is evident, contributing to their recent victory over West Ham. Ghana is keen on convincing him to switch allegiance, despite his representation of England in youth categories. Born in Stockport to Ghanaian parents, the Black Stars aim to lure him away from the Three Lions. The Ghana Football Association expresses interest in working with talented individuals like Mainoo.

Meanwhile, England’s Gareth Southgate is considering including Mainoo in the March squad, coinciding with Ghana’s efforts to persuade him. England emphasizes its interest in the player’s progress, unrelated to potential interest from other nations.
