Stuttgart-born Jamal Musiala is 'desperate' to face England after snubbing them in favour of Germany... now with almost 80 Bayern Munich appearances to his name, the 19-year-old will be out to prove his decision to follow his heart was the right one

It could be an unusual experience for Jamal Musiala on Tuesday night.

Back in November 2020, after he scored on his first start for England Under-21s in a 5-0 rout of Albania, German FA chief Meikel Schonweitz expressed his disappointment that Germany had failed to persuade him to represent their country.

A little over 18 months later, Stuttgart-born Musiala could line up for Die Mannschaft's senior team - against England - and has admitted he is 'desperate' to impress if he plays in the Nations League clash.

So how has it got to this point, and how much will the Three Lions regret losing the gifted attacking midfielder to Hansi Flick's side?
