Where could you play soccer?

This is of course, speaking hypothetically, not referring to actual ability.

But, as this Screamer piece talks about, a LOT of players as this year's World Cup were eligible to play for multiple countries when it came time to choose a country to suit up for thanks for FIFA's eligibility rules.

Under FIFA guidelines, a person is eligible to play for a country based on these circumstances:

  • They were born there
  • A biological parent or grandparent was born there
  • They have lived there for five consecutive years after turning 18

So, that leads us to today's fun game: What countries could you play soccer for?

Myself? Obviously the United States. But, since my grandmother was born in Canada, I could play for them as well.

So, how about all of you?
