i remember hearing somewhere that players from some african nations dont count as non-eu and i wondered if this is actually true and if it is does any one have a list of these countries?

See: Cotonou Agreement

I think all African nations are under this.

Not sure if it's in the game because I never seem to load enough nations to test it out.

Its in the game. And makes Spain a really fun place to play. Restrictions for Spain are against "non-EU players, not including Africa", which means S. and N. America, the Caribbean, Oceania, Asia, and the Middle East.

However, players from S. and Central America only take 730 days to naturalize in Spain, so this can mean bringing in these players even in their mid twenties, playing them as one of your designated foreign players or sending them on loan, and then having a party when they take Spain as another nationality.

Technically it should also work with Carribean and pacific countries. Anyone tried to bring in a Jamaican to Spain and see if he counted against the foreing players limit?

This would explain why Yaya Toure isn't counted as one of my foreign players.

This has been puzzling me.

All african nations exept Egypt, Libya, Marocco, Algeria and Tunisia are under this.
And the caribbean and pacific nations are under it too.

In Greece African players are "EU" too , this is supposed to be valid all around the union .

Some countries, like the horrible insular-looking country I happen to be from, would make sure they had an opt-out from something like this, I'm sure. I don't think it is valid across the EU.
