Canadian Dual Nationals

Recommended Posts

Given that Canada hasn't qualified for a world cup in his absence, I'm guessing there probably isn't much regret at missing taxing  games that would have affected his career. Plus, with NIreland he's only ever a good season away from a call up

I too want my son to represent Canada, and not opt for Jamaica, Guyana, or the Philippines... W. E that means.

Yes, because being the son of a professional athlete guarantees that you're going to be one to.....the utter look of disgust on my face right now that someone thought this was newsworthy.....smarten up Duane.

I dont know...it all sounds good but after all these years with MLS, how many duals have we naturalized??  I think maybe we have lost more to the US as the MLS clubs have steered potential CDN duals that way.  I wouldnt hold my breath on the CPL bringing in guys that can make our squad.  

Whats funny is i talked about this 12 months ago on this very forum and was hounded out.

Yet only a day ago..

Eriq Zavaleta has been with TFC for 5 years now.  He could probably get his Canadian citizenship and file a 1 time switch if he wanted to.  He’s expressed wanting to play for El Salvador in the past and would be a major upgrade for them.

I’m not exactly sure where he would fit in our CB depth but I think he would be a top 5 CB for us.

🤮 at the idea of Zavaleta playing for Canada.

Hasnt Bush said he has no desire to switch?  And dont these guys have to basically stay year round in canada??  If they split in the offseason they wont have enough days in canada over the 5 year period.  As for Zaveleta, I would take Waterman or Didic over him.

Zavaleta has played in official youth competitions for the US. He'll never be able to switch to Canada since he didn't hold Canadian citizenship when he played for the US. El Salvador would be his only option if he decided to file his switch.

Has someone told the CSA that foreign players can get naturalized?  Maybe this dingle troll will inform them in for us.  Oops, I'm feeding the troll.  

Dont play dumb. I raised the idea of imported young foreign talent into the CPL a year ago and was belitted, told it was unethical, denying local talent etc etc.

Its a proven model around the world - ie Qatar, Portugal
