Why not? Neymar may be a top young player but until he comes to Europe and proves himself with the best I don't think it's fair to rate him over the likes of Hazard and the other premier talents in Europe.

I'd take Oscar over Neymar too, actually.

Bosnia with 3.8 million peeps could have really had a team.


Ibra going to sweden probably feels as bad to bosnians as Subotic and Rossi betraying USA did to me

those stupid f*cks, we would be a world class side with those two.

Ibrahimovic didn't need to go to Sweden. He is from Sweden.

Looked it up and not one of these players is a product of the country of their ethnic heritage. Most of them moved away early childhood or were born in their host country.

The Swiss ones of Albanian origin all represent Switzerland. Mad respect to them for not letting Albania take their talent.

The Turks recruited Nuri Sahin before he was 16. Not mad though that he plays for Turkey. Can't stand the guy.

Now the Turks have him trying to recruit Samed Yesil since they're both at Liverpool.

Samed Yesil and Emre Can already said they'll play for Germany. Hands off!

Yes, alot of them were born and raised in kosova but moved abroad in their early teens. I'm not saying they are a product of Albania and I'm not saying they should play for Albania but I'm just continuing on the discussion with the Balkans producing alot of talent for their small population size. that is all

BTW, Is shaqiri tearing it up with Bayern?

Yep thanks for training Sead Kolasinac, we'll gladly take him off your hands now that he's finished using up the German youth systems.

(Already stated that he's waiting for a call up from Bosnia). I bet you consider Felix Sturm to be a full blooded German even though he reps the Bosnian flag in every fight.
