Published on: 23 January 2021

Brighton right-back Tariq Lamptey has stated that he will have to wait and see what happens concerning the country he will represent in future.

Lamptey is of a Ghanaian descent but has featured for England in their junior teams.

This season, he has been outstanding for Brighton and recently extended his contract at the club.

In his interview with TalkSport, he gave an idea of his national team future.

“On the international side I have to see what happens, because at the moment, I'm playing for England U21s.

“My main focus is just playing for Brighton and making sure that I'm improving each game, developing well and playing as many games as possible.

“If I work hard enough, and I keep believing myself, hopefully I'll keep getting noticed, and we'll see what happens.”

“Football is not a game of how tall you are, how strong you are."

"It is about if you have the ability, and you work hard and you believe in yourself, you can achieve anything."

“I definitely don't let my size hold me back. If anything, I think I use it to my advantage.

“I look forward to having the battles on the pitch I look, I look forward to going into each game and trying to get the better of whoever I am playing up against so I always enjoy the challenges.

“I feel like whatever height you are, however tall you are, it shouldn't hold you back as long as you can play football and you have the desire to play.”
