Everton's England U17 star Hallam Hope admits he may not have been going to Mexico for the World Cup.

It could have also been a very different story at international level, with the teenager eligible to play for Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.

"My dad is from Barbados and my Nana is also from there," he said.

"I'm eligible to play for Trinidad and Tobago through my grandad, but the main link is with Barbados - all my uncles live over there. It's not that far from Mexico, so maybe a couple of them will come over and support me!"
