Giannis Masmanidis



This player cant play for the national team because EPO has silly rules: He's a Greek from Germany and wants to play for Greece. EPO says that he had to express his desire to play for the national team before his 21st b-day and didnt express it until his 22nd birthday!!!

It's not EPO's rule, it's FIFA's.

I don't think it's about EPO's inadequacies. I mean if Masmanidis was so keen on wearing the galanolefki then why the hell did he play for Germany?
