Your Eligible Countries

Recommended Posts

What countries would you be eligible to play for due to family like parents, uncles, grandparents and great-grandparents? And which would you actually play for given the nod?

England through birth and Spain through parents and obviously descendants.

My son is in an even better position due to my wife being Italian where he can play for England through birth, Spain due to the fact I'm dual national and have given him full Spanish nationality and the same with my wife where he's also got an Italian passport... Three passports, three nationalities for three great footballing nations in Spain, Italy and England.

Peru through birth, Canada through passport and I would also be eligible for England (my grandparents are from Ipswich). I think anyways, not sure how the process works but even my surname is British.

India through birth

Portugal through parents/grandparents

Given my time and residence permit in the UAE I think I'd like to have played for them when I was younger. Adnan Al-Talyani was a hero of mine growing up and he played for one club his whole career so if I did have a chance I'd play for them.

Just Scotland I think. Can't actually trace further back than my great grandparents, who were all born here.

England through birth. Potentially Canada through my grandma who was born there but moved to England aged 3.

So me and Brian could actually play together internationally.

Mine's England through birth, and Wales through very distant family apparently. I'd play for England though if I had a choice.

Apparently being born on the Isle of Man I'd be eligible for England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland. Too bad I'm shit.

What if he went on to play IN Spain and chose to go to Real Madrid? :ph34r:

 

@Teso dos Bichos would suit wearing the USA badge...

Somone actually joked about that to me the other day and I told him straight which is something I cannot repeat here.

Just to say, it isn't going to happen mate, I'll make damned sure about that. ;)
