On September 23, Beijing time, according to the "Beijing Youth Daily" news, the Chinese Football Association has recently submitted to the FIFA Players Identification Department the "certification materials" of Jiang Guangtai and other naturalized players. After the ruling is implemented in the near future, Jiang Guangtai He will be able to represent the national football team. Before that, even if he participated in the October national football training camp, there was no violation.
According to informed sources, on the issue of players changing their nationalities, the professional clubs that are the employers of players are the main body of specific operations. Once a candidate player successfully changes his nationality, he (she) wants to represent the national (region) team in international competitions, so he must further change his FIFA membership. In this process, the main body of specific operations is the member associations.
After receiving the certification materials submitted by the Chinese Football Association in the near future, the FIFA Player Identification Department will soon initiate a "hearing"-style procedure, and its team will make a final ruling on the specific cases of player membership changes. The specific results are expected to be produced around October this year. Judging from the current situation, the Chinese Football Association is full of confidence in "Jiang Guangtai's successful change of membership".
According to the same rules, Hou Yongyong and Xiao Taotao's application for changing FIFA membership has also been accepted by the FIFA Player Status Department, and the application is passed without any suspense. However, the rich lineup of naturalized players also brings the trouble of "choosing" to the national football coach Li Tie.
