    i wasn't trying to be racial when creating this thread or say that having people with different nationalities play on your team is bad. i'd love to have some players with different nationalities play for south korea! for example like japan and alessandro santos. i bet a lot of people in brazil went for santos in 2002 WC

    Russia- Shin Eui Son (korean but played twice i think as Russia's goalkeeper)
    Germany- Gerald Asamoah (Ghania)
    USA- Freddy Adu (Ghana)
    Japan- Alessandro Santos (Brazil)
    South Africa- Hans Vonk (Netherlands)
    Poland- Emmanuel Olissadebee (Poland),
    Tunisia - Francileudo Dos Santos (Brazil)
    Tunisia - Clayton (Brazil)
    Germany - Oliver Neuville (Switzerland)
    Germany- Paulo Rink (Brazil)

    France are the complete kings of taking advantage of African talent-imagine where they'd be in the football world without their former empire :p

    Don't forget there's also:

    Australia Max Vieri (Christian's forgotten brother) (Italy)

    Technically was born in Australia, but pretty much everything else about him seems pretty Italian to me :p We've stopped picking him lately though...

    And the three greatest examples of traitorous scum to walk this Earth:

    Croatia-Josip Simunic (Australia)
    Croatia-Ante Seric (Australia)
    Croatia-Joey Didulica (Australia)

    All of Croatian heritage, true, but born, raised and bought up as footballers in Australia :mad: :mad: OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!

    Traitor! :mad:

    I'm pretty positive that Radzinski is more or less completely Canadian. I know he grew up in North York, Toronto (Where I live) since when he was a kid... Plus, I believe he is of Polish Descent, not Czech.

    God,we have too many Brazilians playing at different countries.Maybe I would move to Macau or Guam and get another nationality :D

    Well,Lebanon and Brazil have a solid relationship,so it's normal.They must have 3rd or 2nd Lebanese heritage,so that's easily explained.

    it's 'puff, puff, pass', not 'puff, puff, hold ... puff, puff, smoke some more' .... but whatever you're smokin, give some to me ;):D:p

    Zinedine Zidane's parents are from Morocco???? that's news to me. and him. last Zizou checked, he was Algerian. and Brian McBride's from England????????????? did you seriously write that? Brian McBride is born and raised in the US (and his parents and their parents). as far as the 5 latino players that were born outside of the US ... let me think: Pablo Mastroeni, he was born in Argentina. there's one. Bocanegra was born in California. Claudio Reyna was born in New Jersey. Chris Armas is Puerto Rican, which last I checked is part of the US. where are the other 4 players??? hmm ... i'm starting to think you're less than informed.

    It's a US territory or something like that. I think all Puerto Ricans are US citizens but are not allowed to vote in us elections.

    I think that you have to separate the players who change nationalities once they are either; adult, pro player and those who change nationalities when their families emmigrate to another country and they are kids.

    Example the Brazilian player who took up German citizenship were already adult and established pro. His reason for taking German citizenship I suspect was to get by the foreign player limits and possibly play for the NAT team.

    The US player Pablo Maestroni moved from Argentina with his family when he was 3. Not many three olds are scouted as potential players.

    It also depends on the countries immigration policy. France, US, UK (and other countries) take in a many refugees and immigrants. The above example Pablo Maestroni came from Argentina during all the political trouble there and was just one family of many who left the country.

    On the other hand you have a guy like Wagner Lopes who helped Japan secure the 1998 WC slot. He was Brazilian and changed nationality quickly to help the J-NAT team. Japan is a country that has an appalling low acceptance of refugees, less than 3 a year...
