Roy Hodgson says questions about the commitment of wonder-kid Wilfried Zaha, who is elgible to play for both England and the Ivory Coast, are "nonsense."
He said: "I spoke to him before he joined up. I explained to him we were interested in him, but only if he was interested in us.
"He assured me he was. He has played for England at Under-21 and Under-19s.
"It seems to me fairly obvious if you want to play for the Under-19s and Under-21s, and are very happy to accept a call-up to the first national team, then that is where you want to play."
