them and made them what they are as players. If African teams want them, they gotta give them a better incentive.
Better incentive=money and infraestrutures they don't have

I get your point about being developed there and all that what confuses me is celebrating goals for countries where u are only valuable if you play good football

Like i said zero coaches or referees in those countries outside of football nobody cares about nikkas in some of those countries

But this nikkas be all happy celebrating goals i don't get it.

I guess i look at the big picture too much most black people don't care(this thread is an example nikkas laughing like its a joke while I'm here hurt cause I wish I could see an African team win the world cup....

Man fukk this pro black shyt. It's a waste of time. I just gonna work on my c00ning

What hurts me more is this Ls back up the narratives that black players are tactical weak and they can only shine in teams with enough whites

It's about money on Both parts. nikkas got be "crazy" enough to turn down money

This is the same problem whenever you see talented black people who are "owned" by white. Money will always speak louder unless the talent is crazy enough to refuse it

These two. One brother chose Germany and the other Ghana. One played for Bayern+City and the other for AC Milan + Spurs.

What many of y’all choose to ignore is a lot of these “African” players weren’t born in Africa. They were born in the European countries they play for.

Meanwhile all the SA nations keep their best talent. :mjlol:

A lot of these Argentinians, Brazilians etc got dual nationalities but choose to play for their native lands.

Shout out to Drogba and Eto'o though. Actual black kings and not shameless c00ns.
Top SA teams are guaranteed to go to the world cup; no African team is guaranteed a place, qualification is a bloodbath
also most of them played for local side before moving to europe
neymar = santos
suarez = nacional

in the case of Africans, they were developed by European clubs

A bunch of stupid fukkers who only care about Football when the World Cup is around.

Players will likely play in the country they were raised in. This is common sense. You will see that with a lot of players, they play in the under 16, under 18 and under 21 squads.

This is easier for them to do when they don't have to travel overseas for training. It puts them on the path for playing for the senior team.

They were born or raised in Europe, that's why. It's not complicated.

If African FA's were more organized and less corrupt, then perhaps more of these players with African heritage will want to play for their countries of heritage.

Reality is that they want to represent the countries that they were born/raised in first. For some it's also a matter of opportunity. There are Brazilian citizens who have been naturalized and are playing for foreign countries because the Brazilian national team is too deep. Portugal has a number of these players.

Also, many African teams are fielding players who were born and raised in Europe. Quite a few of them actually. Most, if given the opportunity would prefer to play for the countries in which they were raised. There are some TOP players of Nigerian heritage playing at the highest level right now. Does that mean we should expect to see the likes of Saka and Musiala suiting up for the Super Eagles? :mjlol:

Also, this is not something unique to African teams. It's about prestige for the players. Owen Hargreaves was born and raised in Canada yet decided to represent England. Tomori could have played for Canada as well, but instead chose England. Now he's watching the WC from home.

Finally, all of these players that OP is referring were developed by European FAs (football association). African FAs need to focus on investing more money on player development so they too can develop these world class players.

Its just confusing perhaps to some American commenters because we have foreign born athletes compete in our sports leagues all the time, but when the Olympics comes around, those athletes often represent their home countries and compete for their national teams.

I guess football and the World Cup are a different dynamic though. I am ignorant of the dynamic myself. But since world cup and the sport has never been as popular in America as it is around the world, perhaps more of us are ignorant of that difference as well.

I'm sure some of these athletes were born and/or mostly raised in the countries they represent as well.
