Andriy Shevchenko’s son is training at Chelsea’s youth academy and could qualify to represent England through his residency status.

“My second son is training at Chelsea Academy,” Shevchenko said in an interview with Ukrainian site Vesti.ua. “This is a very good school, which brought up more than a dozen players of excellent level.”

Kristian would also qualify to play internationally for Ukraine and likely the USA and Poland via his mother’s citizenship – Shevchenko’s wife is Polish-American model Kristen Pazik.

Asked which national team he would like his son to represent in the future, the 42-year-old said: “I would like to face such a choice. I’d love to. If there is to be such a choice, then we will talk.”
