ticked off about that. Something happened there.
Ozil of Germany is another one. The Turks weren't too happy when he decided to
play for Germany. But I believe he is of German decent.
The best story is of the Boatengs. One of the brothers plays for Germany and the
other plays for Ghana. All fair considering the father is German and I believe the
mother is Ghanan. But now I hear the German brother wont even talk to his.other
brother because he believes his brother tried to hurt Ballack in the last WC. Weird.
And there's a handful of Brazilians trying to change citizenship in time to play for a
different country. FIFA will usually catch those.
