    I wonder does Zaha regret that decision now? He'd be a regular squad member for England this season.

    He quite possibly does, but only in hindsight. At the time (November 2016) switching his allegiance was probably the right decision. He'd been playing regularly in the Premier League since the last of his two caps - one in 2012 and one in 2013 - and it looked like he wasn't going to get a call up in the future. Looking at England's 2018 World Cup Squad he possibly would have started ahead of Lingard, but it's tough to argue that he would be a regular starter. In their current squad, it's hard to argue against him starting ahead of Sterling or Sancho, so he'd probably still be a substitute. Would he rather have that, or his nine caps and two goals for the Ivory Coast?
