    Dual eligible? Yes, we've been here before.

    Totally correct.... thats for war torn countries like Northern Ireland etc !

    If a Player who has been fielded by his Association in an international match in accordance with art .
    15 par. 2 permanently loses the nationality of that country without his consent or against his will
    due to a decision by a government authority, he may request permission to play for another
    Association whose nationality he already has or has acquired .
    Just to add to the above - for this section to apply, the request to change association would need to be due to an act or decision of a Government authority in country of the original association that would have removed his citizenship or nationality.

    It could be war torn countries (i.e. independence movements) but it could equally be simply a change in policy of the government in a specific country. For example, if a hypothetical new government in Italy imposed a law revoking citizenship obtained by migrants that entered the country in certain years, any migrants who would otherwise be bound by the rules could apply to FIFA under this provision to change their affiliation to their country of birth (or another country that they might qualify for).

    Will be interesting to see how the headline ages

    Sorry, the headline I was referring to was in the link on reddit.

    he's more than good enough to play against Gibraltar. You can't argue that it's purely a call up for call up's sake considering he's playing at a higher level to Cullen and Byrne

    As Zero points out on the squad thread, Connell may yet be cut when the squad is reduced from 27 to 23 for the qualifiers.

    I'm sure it's probably a coincidence but unusually he signed with Adidas today. Michael Obafemi is also an Adidas player.

    Glad to see him called up and hopefully, this means the FAI have learned their lesson re young dual eligible players. 89 minute appearance vs Gibraltar now please.

    Mick says he won't throw him on just to cap-tie him but is open to giving him a run-out if he "rips it up" in training camp: https://www.irishexaminer.com/breaki...rs-925899.html

    There is absolutely no reason why Mick shouldn't cap-tie him against Gibraltar that is unless we want to end up with egg in our faces for the umpteenth time.
