Paulo Figueiredo (÷sters IF)

Ok apparantly this guy plays for Angola. I know Angola was a Portuguese colony so they speak it and all. Im just wondering why this particular player chose to play for Angola? Is he not skilled enough? Props to Angola for all they've done, but I think most players with a choice would pick Portugal over Angola. European competition > African competition.

Perhaps he's not good enough for Portugal, seeing as he only plays in the Portuguese second division ?

He's a decent player though. Very intelligent and a good passer. The "Pirlo/Veron" type of midfielder.

He was actually born in Angola. SO his qualification is straight forward. No different say Zidane playing for France in terms of birth. He does have Portuguese born parents.

I have my doubts about Angola...I dont think they will be any good in the World Cup. I was really disappointed when I saw their performance in this tournament. Altought this Figueiredo was not too bad..
