Seye and Nemanja Matic apply for Slovak citizenship

Interesting.

Well, if you can't produce good talents, naturalize them I suppose.

This Serbian guy is quite young. Is this move being carried out to get him play for Slovakia (read something along those lines on that page you posted) or to facilitate traveling ?

He just left a message on a website dedicated to his hometown saying how seeing pics of it almost makes him cry

If I had to live in Košice, I´d cry as well

I´m realistic, svk passport makes their living in EU easier. Boys can play for U21 nt and later we´ll see. I doubt they´ll stay here forever since everyone who knows to kick the ball properly usually goes abroad.

Nemaja discussed this thing with his daddy and he told him it´s up to his decision. Guys decided to apply for svk-citizenship because of many advantages, free travelling, no foreigners quotas in EU-clubs for non-EU citizens etc. In addition serbian NT isn´t interested in him anyway.
