I highly doubt whether schools will weigh whether one grew up in an English speaking country against whether one has a top relevant publication when it comes to recruitment of professors. If they go down that route, next they might have to look at whether English is their mother tongue as to ascertain what the applicants might have spoken at home when growing up. I highly doubt that schools would do that. I know of top US professors who grew up in places like France, Germany and Sweden, which are not English speaking.
If one has a top PhD and a top publication, it is very highly likely that they can communicate in English.
