I didn't read the article but it's quite common. Darnell Mee now plays for Australia and Shammond Williams is a member of The Republic of Georgia, Earl Watson for Mexico although that's not quite the same because his mom is mexican but yeah especially with the EU regulations it's pretty common.

How much pride can you have in your national team knowing that they had to bring in a player from another country?
