Camoranesi is Argentinian and has played with distinction for Italy for ages don't forget.
Surely if a person is considered eligible to be a citizen of a country, then they're also eligible to represent that country?
I mean if we're saying as a country "you've been here long enough to be legally considered 'one of us'" then surely that includes playing for the national football team just as much as claiming unemployment benefits or using the NHS?
I'd take him in an instant, he'd be the first decent player we've had in our midfield in the best part of 20 years.
I agree with the citizenship argument.
I don't think that many people are arguing that he shouldn't play, more that a lot of people won't see it like that.
And they certainly won't when things go wrong.
It's quite a difficult subject as it depends on how a person feels inside. Personally I'd have no problem in going and living somewhere else, claiming citizenship and representing that country.
Other people feel their birth nationality a lot more.
