    He's also now eligible for the country of residence if he hasn't been capped at or above under 21 level for his own country.

    Play in Ukraine for a couple of seasons and you will see that the benefits are one of the most important things that can happen to you, because of the strict rules regarding players with nationality.

    I think most players in game (but also in real life i guess) take a second European nationality to count as an EU citizen and thus (in many leagues, like spain and italy) not as a foreign player.

    Some leagues have restrictions on the amount of foreign players in a match day squad or even in a squad at all (spain for example). So by taking the European nationality, "Non EU"-players remove that restricition from themselves and are therefore a lot more interesting for clubs in countries that apply these restricitions.

    This is the reason many South Americans trace their family lines for an European ancestor and why South Americans in Spain always take up a Spanish second nationality when they have the chance (unless they already have a different European second nationality; Italian is a pretty common one).

    EU players who apply for British citizinship (at least in game) have another reason: they do this to be eligeble to play for England. This seems a little buggy in game if you ask me; I have seen (Dutch) players apply for a British passport and stating that they wanted to play for England, while they were already capped for the u21 side and therefore declared for another nation already.

    Another bug connected to this is that Dutch players, who are declared for Holland but have a British passport and 'wanted to play for England' when they applied, are still scouted by the England manager 'for the next England squad' every once and a while. Even a player I have capped for Holland myself (I am their manager in game) is still considered for England on a regular basis....

    I noticed that Peter Lovenkrands is eligible for a British nationality on days however next to it it says he hardly speaks any English. I assume this means he can't get one. Well from interviews that I have heard He seems to know English really well. In fact he even speaks it in a sort of weegie accent after his time at rangers.



    If you listen to this interview judge for yourself how good his english is...

    Yeah I thought that he spoke really good english. I'm not a rangers fan but could remember him in particular due to his random accent from radio interviews etc.

    He'd not get british nationality anyways, though. He'd see no benefit in it, since he's capped for Denmark and already have an EU-passport (danish).

    Not really my point though. He probably wouldn't take it like you said but the reasoning is wrong.

    Any chance he now has a non-player profile, I noticed one of my Spanish players who had been with me for over 10 years lost his ability to speak English when he became a coach.
