The former Manchester United defender’s decision opens up new opportunities, as he is now eligible to compete for DR Congo in the qualifiers for the 2025 African Cup of Nations and the 2026 World Cup.

Tuanzebe’s choice to join the DR Congo national team came after his aspirations of representing England were no longer viable.

Despite his earlier involvement with England’s youth teams, he is now committed to making an impact for his new national team.

He will now be playing under manager Sebastien Desabre.
