NATIONS - Aston Villa defender set to debut for Poland?
Aston Villa defender Matt Cash could make his international debut for Poland in November, if he can arrange his citizenship paperwork in time.
Cash’s mum is Polish, and the right back is keen to feature for Paulo Sousa’s side as soon as possible, with the World Cup in Qatar just 14 months away.
Cash has now lodged the necessary paperwork with the international authorities to apply for a Polish passport, but Sky Sports News understands it could take up to eight weeks for his citizenship to be approved.
That makes it very unlikely he will be able to feature in next month’s World Cup Qualifiers, but he’s hopeful he can still be involved in Poland’s final qualifiers against Andorra on November 12, and Hungary on November 15.
