Aston Villa star reportedly in line for international call-up


Aston Villa defender Matty Cash is set to be approached by Poland ahead of the next round of World Cup qualifiers, according to reports.

The full-back, whose mother is Polish, has been on the Poles’ radar for some time but has been reluctant to commit as he still has hopes of being chosen by England, reports to the Mail.

Cash joined Villa from Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2020 and impressed on his maiden top-flight campaign under Dean Smith.

This season, Cash has been an ever-present in Villa’s team and the right-back scored his first Premier League goal in the club’s 3-0 win over Everton on Saturday evening.

Despite Cash’s notable displays since joining Villa, England are well-stocked with full-backs as Trent Alexander-Arnold has struggled to establish himself under England boss Gareth Southgate, with Kyle Walker, Reece James and Kieran Trippier ahead of him in the queue.

Speaking after Villa’s win over Everton, Cash told talkSPORT: “My mum’s Polish so I can qualify to play for Poland, I’ll have to do my talking on the pitch and see what happens.”

Asked about his well-taken goal, Cash replied: “To be fair I had a few chances in the first half to do the same sort of thing, but dragged a few wide.

“I just want to keep getting into those positions, bombing on and on but just need to work on that finish.

“I think playing as a wing-back at Forest helped and now in the modern day I just want to be that full-back who can attack and get forwards which is really important, so that’s what I’ll try and do week in, week out and do the other side of the game as well, but it was really nice to get my first goal.”
