Oscar: I Would Swap Brazil Nationality For China

Former Chelsea star Oscar, who has not played for Brazil since 2016, has revealed that, if he was allowed to, he would switch his nationality in order to represent the Chinese national team.

The 28-year-old was once a regular for the Selecao, having played 48 times for his country after his senior debut in 2011.

Many questioned Oscar's commitment to football when he took his career to Shanghai SIPG from the Blues in January 2017, but the midfielder seems to have enjoyed every minute of playing in the Chinese Super League (CSL).

In a recent interview, he even admitted he would play for the Chinese national team if there was a rule change.

"Of course, I can think about it (changing nationalities) because it's difficult to go to the Brazil national team now because I'm here, but in China everyone sees how good I play," Oscar told Sportscene.

"And the China national team need one good midfielder, so I think I can help with this.

"I like China, but the players now who go to China to change their nationality, they can do better also."
