“There is no greater honor than representing your country. The coverage is tainted by racism.
“We played the European Championship across ten countries in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and there was absolutely no problem. But CameroonIt is one country that hosts the tournament, which is a problem for some.”
Wright added that he objected to the players being asked if they intended to play for their countries.

Many of the Premier League’s best players will miss club matches in January for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Crystal Palace will be without Wilfried Zaha, Jordan Ayew and Shekho Kouyate, but coach Patrick Vieira said he would not try to persuade any player to miss the finals.
