The world football governing body FIFA is envisaging to help players switch nationalities, with a change to the rule announced on Wednesday.
FIFA is looking to ease the switch of nationalities for players who are eligible to play for more than one country.
Over the years, players have been frustrated after playing just one competitive game for one country and failing to go on to play again, whereas they were eligible to play for two or more countries.
The new proposal will permit such players to switch their eligibility from one national team to another if they have played a maximum of three times for the first national team.
This will include tournaments’ qualifiers before they turned 21 and at least three years earlier.
Many African players have been frustrated by the current disposition, so the change in rule will come as a relief to many.
