In theory you are completely correct, Krajo. Is that what actually happens in international football though? I think not. Im convinced that 99% of footballers choose NT's just for their personal glory, if they can play for a big nation over their smaller country of origin they will but if they are not good enough then they will play for the worse NT.
Just look at the Boateng brothers for a great example. Jerome was playing at HSV, having a couple of good season and he choose to play for Germany where as Prince was playing for Portsmouth at the time, badly wanted to play at the WC, and therefore choose Ghana. He has since retired from the Ghanian NT.
I know what you are talking about and i wish more people thought the way you did but in reality its just not the way it is.
