Eduardo Ferreira Plays v Spain

Mpumalanga Black Aces' defender Eduardo Ferreira made a surprise appearance against Spain on Saturday night, when he came on as a substitute for Equatorial Guinea in an International Friendly.

The Brazilian-born defender, who also played for Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns, came on as a substitute in the second-half of the match that Spain won 2-1.

Equatorial Guinea have controversially naturalised a number of foreign-born players, including over forty Brazilian players for both their men's and women's teams over the years.

According to FIFA rules, to qualify to play for a nation, a player must have been born there, or have a biological parent or grandparent from that country, or have lived continuously in the country for five years.

A few years ago Ferreira expressed his desire to qualify for South Africa, and while that did not work out, he has now tasted International football.
