Timothy Fayulu, the talented 24-year-old goalkeeper currently plying his trade for FC Sion in the Swiss D2 league, has made a significant decision regarding his international football career. Fayulu has opted to play for the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) national team, commonly known as the Leopards, in future international matches, turning his back on Switzerland.

In an announcement made on the Rhône TV set, Fayulu expressed his definitive choice to represent his ancestral homeland, the DRC, stating, “That’s Switzerland… I’ve made my choice. I decided to represent my country, Congo. And that is clear.”

This decision marks a notable about-face for Fayulu, who had previously shown some indecision about his international allegiance.

In a Live Instagram session in March 2021, Fayulu had indicated his commitment to Switzerland’s U21 team, citing a clear and concise message from the Swiss football federation.

However, despite this declaration, Fayulu had limited opportunities to play during the Euro U-21 Hungary-Slovenia 2021 tournament, leading to a reassessment of his international future.

Fayulu’s resurgence at FC Sion, where he has featured prominently in the starting lineup, has reignited his desire to represent the DRC at the highest level.

With 36 appearances across all competitions this season, Fayulu has demonstrated his skill and reliability between the posts.

His decision to join the Leopards comes at a crucial time, with Fayulu poised to provide valuable reinforcement to the national team, particularly in light of Lionel Mpasi’s injury.

As one of the standout performers in the Swiss Challenge League, Fayulu’s inclusion adds depth and quality to Sébastien Desabre’s squad, offering a promising outlook for the future of Congolese football.
