Muamba turns down DR Congo call

Muamba has rejected a call-up from Congo

Birmingham City midfielder Fabrice Muamba has rejected an international call-up from Congo in order to preserve his eligibility for England.

The 19-year-old was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and moved to England at the age of 11.

Muamba captained England's Under-19 side last season and suffered an ankle injury in last Thursday's European Championship qualifier against Holland.

The former Arsenal youngster should be fit before pre-season training begins.
