I am Bosnian but I am an Australian Citizen. I love Bosnia but I want to play for Australia because it's a great country it has made me the player I am.

uhoh... let's not repeat what happened with Falcao in a similar topic, please. :wink:

I would play for Canada. I still have family in Scotland and England (I think in England... :? ) so if I ever move there, I might be able to play for them, but I don't know. I think I'd still play for Canada.

I have been born and bred in the US... but I lived in Spain for a year, and I have dual citizenship for Holland. Therefore I would play for Holland, and if I didn't make the team, then so be it.

i have right to get Croatian and Bosnian nationality...
i can maybe get Montenegrin nationality, because my last name is similar to some of their...
but i'm 100% Serb, and i don't need any other nationality...

interesting thing is that with Croatian passport i could go anywhere without visa... US,UK,EU... but still national pride is national pride...

Canada and Poland.

If I could though, Poland might be where I would like to play. Especially for EURO 2012, but that's a stretch. Still, I am more Polish then Canadian, even though I was born and raised here in Canada. All of my family's Polish, and I consider myself full Polish as well.

It doesn't seem to me like a lot of you have much national pride. I mean, some of you guys say I would play for this country, but if I couldn't make it I'd play for another one?! Maybe I can't understand because I'm not in that type of position, but I think some of the opinions that have been expressed reflect a sad truth about many international players: they don't have any pride. They do anything they can to get out of playing in friendlies because they see it as unimportant, when really representing your country on the pitch in any match is a huge honor. My roots aren't completely from the United States, but that is where I have lived all my life and I would be proud to represent my country and would never play for another. I can't fathom going against the nation I have lived in all my life.

Sometimes jcdenton goes on and on about Serbia (no worries) but I respect his pride in his country. Just imagine how incredible international matches could be if all professional footballers had that attitude.
