Wilfried Zaha has no plans to leave international football following surprises from his Ivory Coast coach.

Elephants boss Patrice Beaumelle said Zaha “wants to reflect on the rest of his international career” after leaving the Crystal Palace star out of his last team.

But Beaumelle’s comments have come as a surprise and it is understood that he has misinterpreted what was thought to be private discussions about elements of the Ivory Coast configuration.

Beaumelle and winger Zaha, 28, held talks and agreed that it would be left out of the former’s plans for the upcoming World Cup qualifying matches against Mozambique and Cameroon.

The decision was made with Côte d’Ivoire in pole position in their group to reach the play-offs heading into their last two games, but also in light of Zaha’s illness last month.

It is not the first time that Zaha returned from international service feeling bad after the last break.

Zaha declined the call due to her recent illness, not due to reported homesickness.

He missed Palace’s next game against Arsenal before appearing as a second-half substitute against Newcastle.

Zaha made a scoring return to the starting lineup against Manchester City and, after taking some time to shake off the effects of his illness from the last break, it was decided that Zaha would be best to stay home for the next.

That call will be welcomed by Palace, who has also wanted to avoid the prospect of running out of his talisman once again upon his return from representing his country.
