Default Re: Kaman cleared to play for Germany

At least he had German roots, he looks German, so I don't really see that big of a problem. The naturalization is bit ridiculous though, that's why I congratulated team Italy on winning the world cup with Italian players, a good example of a totally local-ethnic team. I really hate the way they play, but they deserve credit for winning with local men, born and raised there. Same with Spain, only one foreigner on the football team. Basketball, Spain is completely Spanish, Greece is Greek, Italy is Italian, Serbia is Serbian, Croatia is Croatian, Lithuania is Lithuanian, but we have the Lavrinovic twins, they both were born in Lithuania, both speak it fluently, but are either Polish or Belarussian I'm not sure. And look at the results of these countries compared to the ones that naturalize citizens just for sports.
