If he chooses to play for Bangladesh, he can become a beacon of inspiration for the next generation.

The Muslim athlete support group's latest member is a former England U21 player who recently opened the door to the possibility of playing for Bangladesh.

According to the story on Sky Sports, the next generation of kids will have a renewed sense of belief if he plays for Bangladesh.

He could be a real beacon for young Bangladesh kids, who could look to him and say I can do that.

Someone who can encourage others to take up the sport is hamza. I think it would be positive for many people if he did it.

Since joining the Hornets on a season-long loan with an option to buy, he has been a stalwart in the side.

He has been a pleasure to work with. He is a person who gives everything he has. You can see that in his performances. I can't say enough good things about him.

Lau said it was an important event and a good start. The goal was to get people in the room talking so that we can make progress.

It has been great working with them. It's almost too easy if you know how to get it and how to be open to what you want to do. I think it's amazing that the club reciprocates that love for me.
