So, if an English/French/Nigerian/Whatever child is born in Fiji as their parents happen to be on holiday there, or are working there, that child is Fijian? Even if the child leaves Fiji after two hours?
After watching latest world cup game, should we rename? From my observations a Kenyan,Samoan , kiwi,South African and Trinidad, maybe more, do we agree with this policy or my policy of place of birth end of.
in these days of globalisation, where people across nationalities often marry and then live and work in other countries, I think rules have to be pragmatic.
For me – country of your birth and that of your parents should be the options. But it should be a one time option and once you have represented your country at whatever level, that’s how it stays. No switching when you realise that just because you were a decent player at U15 level you won’t make the full grade so you switch to a lesser nation.
And qualification by virtue of 5 years residence or whatever it is. No.
