​Bournemouth forward Afobe could turn back on England for DR Congo berth

Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe has admitted he will seriously consider representing DR Congo, the country he qualifies for through his parents, despite the possibility of a future England call-up.

The 23 year old told Sky Sports: "We'll see in the next international break what will happen, but I know they are interested in me, and it's something my family, my agent and myself are going to have to sit down and talk about.

"Of course [it's a big decision to make] because you know once you've played the international game that isn't a friendly, that's you done, you get to choose once and you have to live with it.

"But hopefully I will choose well with my family and I won't regret anything."
