    After some speculation about American parentage, we have done enough detective work to show that Samuel Shashoua has an American-born father and is likely eligible for a US passport.

    SAMUEL SHASHOUA
    [​IMG]
    Date of birth: 13 May 1999
    Attacking midfielder who scored for our Under-18s on the opening day of 2015-16 against Brighton and went on to make 18 league appearances at that level.

    Grandfather immigrated to the US as a boy and was adopted by an Scottish-American woman. His son, Mark, was born in the US, schooled in the UK and went to college at Syracuse. Thus, Mark (Samuel's father) likely has enough residency in the US to pass along citizenship to his sons.

    This profile from the club helped confirm his likely US citizenship:

    Question5: Apart from being eligible for England which other national teams are you eligible for?
    SS: Spain, America and Venezuela.

    Another profile: http://cartilagefreecaptain.sbnatio...34/samuel-shashoua-tottenham-hotspur-prospect

    Samuel Shashoua is a 16-year-old attacking player who is making headlines recently. At such a young age, he’s already made his debut for the club’s U-23 team.

    He has at least 7 competitive caps for England U17, so he's not making a switch anytime soon.

    His brother, Armando, is also at Tottenham.

    For reference, here are some of the Detective Work threads that got us to here:

    This is one for the long, slow game. He's already provisionally tied to England. Just let him know you are interested and check in every now and then. He'll need to plateau a bit before he's interested in the US (or get frustrated with the wait).
