Wilfried Zaha is only the second Championship (second tier) outfield player in five years to be called up by England. He has played five times for England's under-21s.
Ivory Coast also have their sights on him, however, with Didier Drogba reportedly calling to urge him to commit to the country of his birth.
The Sun newspaper quoted former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou, now with Lille in France, as saying: "I'm unhappy Zaha has chosen England - he is Ivorian and his place is with us.
"He must remember it is not easy to play for - and triumph - with England."
