Aston Villa defender Matty Cash received Polish citizenship on Tuesday and is available to play for the national team starting with their World Cup qualifying matches in November.

The 24-year-old right-back was born in England but qualified to play for Poland through his grandfather. His mother was born in Poland.

“This is a very important day for me and my family,” Cash wrote in Polish on Twitter.

“My application for Polish citizenship has been approved by the Polish authorities. I would like to thank the President, my family and others who helped me with this. In a time of new challenges, I will do my best for this country. ” Cash has been in discussions with the Polish Football Federation since 2019, when he played for Nottingham Forest. He joined Villa last year and has been a regular at the right back.

Poland are second in their World Cup qualifying group, three points behind England, and play Andorra and Hungary in their final qualifiers.
