Wilfried Zaha may not have long to make his decision, with Ivory Coast playing in the African Nations Cup finals starting in South Africa in January.
Zaha tweeted "wow, everything's happening so fast" in response to his call-up on Sunday evening to be included in Roy Hodgson's squad to face Sweden.
The comments paint a picture of a bewilderment at odds with the youngster's supreme confidence when he discusses his ability and ambitions.
Having terrified npower Championship defences this season and last, he freely admits he wants to face "defenders who will properly test me" and is even prepared to mention himself in the same breath as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, widely considered the best two players in the world.
