Today, the Fan Park Crew takes a look at a few footballers of past and present that could’ve played for different international sides.
The German World Cup-winning midfielder had the opportunity to represent Turkey before deciding on playing for Germany.
The former Germany striker could have taken up Polish citizenship, as he was born in Poland, but decided to play for Germany instead and helped steer them to a World Cup win.
The England and Arsenal striker waited a long time to be called up to the England team. While waiting, he had offers to play for Ghana, which is where his parents are from.
The World Cup and European Championship winner could have played for Argentina, as he spent many years living in the country. He opted to play for France instead and it paid off for him.
The Chelsea striker actually first played for Brazil before opting to play for Spain. He was able to make the switch as the games he played for Brazil were only friendlies and not considered as official matches.
The talented winger plays his football for Manchester United and took up a spot in the Belgium national team, but could have played for Croatia, Kosovo and even England.
Moses played in England his whole career and was tipped to play for England at some stage. However, the winger decided to stick with his roots and honoured his call up from Nigeria instead.
Can you think of any current footballers that could have played for other countries?
