With all due respect, I think that is childish at best.

Identifying as ‘English’ and wanting to represent the national team should be the only requisites after legal compliance in my book.

All of my grandparents plus the old man moved to England, mum was born here, and I happily throw on a green shirt on certain occasions however I was born in lewisham hospital, fortuitously survived and identify completely as English just with a very proud acknowledgment of my Irish heritage.

Being ‘Black’ or anything else has nothing to do with the price of fish in my book. If you want to play for the national team and are good enough, that’s all that counts. Start criticising a team that should be picked on merit or claiming you do not identify with it based on race is racism in my book or at least certainly not of any sporting merit.

I nearly burst a lung cheering Mo Farah on to Gold, I didn’t b!tch and moan as he ‘didn’t represent me’ as in fact he did, no matter what he ‘looks’ like.

And there you have it.
