    Might be Irish-qualified too with his surname, so he may yet think twice before commiting himself to Oz.
    I have a feeling he'd want to play for a country that qualifies for World Cups!

    3-2 to Eire there then!
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    Mine doesn't, yet I qualify for one. Weird world, eh?!

    TBF I did say might qualify. Although, that said, I'd say for someone born in London with an Irish surname there's a better than 50/50 shout they have at least an Irish grandfather.

    I think he'll wait until he's about 26 if he's still playing Premier League to see if he gets picked in the England team then use Australia as a last resort

    We'll see though...

    "Creative London-born, Australian-raised midfielder signed from Arsenal on a two-and-a-half year contract in January 2004. Made his Barclays Premiership debut for Blues in September 2005, only to be sent off for handling the ball on the goalline. The playmaker was a former captain of Queensland Boys, but returned to England in 1997 and signed for the Gunners five years later."http://www.premierleague.com/fapl.ra...layerId=269810
    Heard on the radio today that Killkenny has stated to Graham Arnold that he wants to play for Australia....

    He has played a bit of 1st team football for Birmingham this season, so will be interesting...

    I other news Mark Bosnich is reportedly taking a contract up with Conference Team Gray's Athletic... He has reportedly stated he wants to get back to the Premiership...

    Well Guus is going to Russia after the World Cup, so who do you guys think should coach as after the WC, another overseas coach or local. Any of you guys know the coaching background of our current co-assistant coach Johan Neeskens?

    Just noticed that bit. I'm pretty sure you can't represent another country after playing under-21 or senior games for one.

    Think they changed the rule a while back. Should be called "Cahill's law" 'cos he was the driving force in getting it changed. He played for Western Samoa Under-14s which debarred him from playing for the crims until the change.

    It's a bit of a mess tho, with no consistency. Kanoute was allowed to play for Mali despite having played for France U-21s & Ben Thatcher (boo! hiss!) played for our U-21s (IIRC he was captain too) before playing full internationals for the Taffs courtesy of a Welsh grandfather, but JLloyd Samuel can't get permission for a switch to Trinidad now. I think FIFA's ruling was he's too old now (at 24) to switch. Which seems a bit tight.

    Reference Samuel, there was a time when those over a certain age could switch.

    Jlloyd only found this link after that age, so rules is rules...
