Half my team is out playing in the africa cup of nations and I only have 4 substitutes now. My question is, how long does this thing go on for and is it every 2 years or every 4 years?

I think it will go on about a month, but you can hope that your payers' teams will get eliminated early and your players will be back sooner :)

It's usually a month long and happens every 2 years.

Brilliant, just in time to miss my european knockout games. They should really add an option to chain your players to the radiator.

You couldn't stop players playing in international tournaments. I believe there is a FIFA ruling that states that.

The answer is have less foreign players. Try and build a homegrown side.

I agree with anagain but the idea of chaining players to the radiator is pretty good as well

I'm sure not all French players have dual African nationality. I know Wenger seems to find them, but there's plenty that won't get a call up for Burkina Faso or Botswana...surely.

There's a reason for that...
