    Can some one tell me what are the age requirements to play in the national team, i mean for the world cup not the sub 23.

    How old you have to be to play and until what age.

    Generally the youngest age seems to be about 15/16, there may have been some younger. There is no upper age limit but early 40's is about the latest players continue for internationally.

    Thanks the reason i asked this was caue i read in mexico's soccer history that Mexico didn't got to Italy because it violated some rule about the age of some of the players, but someone already explain that it was cause and older player was in the sub-23 or one of the other teams.

    Mexico used an overage player for a sub-23 or younger teams. FIFA banned Mexico in all-level of competation. They were not allowed to play in the WCQ.
