BORNA SOSA will not play for the German national team. Although he himself decided to replace Croatia with Germany, nothing will happen.
comfirmed It is Oliver Bierhoff, the technical director of the German national team.
“We have a good analysis of the whole situation, but unfortunately, this is not a good thing for us. After consulting with FIFA and our hope that Borna will become a member of the German Football Association, we realized , Because Borna is an interesting player, he has great potential, not only because of his outstanding performance this season, but also hope that everything goes well in the continuation of his career.
The index wrote earlier that the Germans were panicked and FIFA was surprised by their actions.
It should be reminded that the young Croatian national team player decided not to participate in the HNS game after the invitation of the German Football Association. This is a conscious risk of obtaining FIFA citizenship. He needs to qualify for the German national team.
As we wrote before, in September 2020, a provision was added to the Umbrella World Football Organization’s statutes, which constituted an obstacle to Sossi playing in Germany. This is Article 9 (paragraph 2), which reads as follows:
Only in the following circumstances, can the application to change the alliance be approved:
a) Introduce players to the game in official matches of any level (except international level) of any type of rugby in the current league
b) When he is introduced to the game in the first game of any official football game in his current league, he already has the nationality of the league he wishes to represent.
In short, Sosa must have German nationality when he plays for the Croatian U-17 national team for the first time. This is the youngest option in the national league to participate in the official competition. However, it was not until this year that the player applied for German citizenship. His mother Vesna was born in Berlin and lived there for a while before he obtained German citizenship.
Putting a reputable German alliance in this position sounds incredible, so during the day, we look for loopholes in rules and special circumstances for our reference. That is to say, the administrative procedures for obtaining citizenship and obtaining citizenship are totally different concepts in law. It is necessary to check the provisions of German law, that is, whether players whose parents were born in Germany automatically obtain citizenship of the country or initiate the acquisition process.
