Recently, at the 70th FIFA Congress, a new version of the naturalization clause for players’ naturalization was voted through, which once again disturbed China.
According to the new FIFA regulations, in addition to Jiang Guangtai, Hou Yongyong and other representatives
It can be said that the selection of naturalized players in the National Football Team will become wider, which is undoubtedly a big plus for Chinese football, which is promoting the naturalization policy. There are fans on the Internet looking forward to the naturalized national football team's strongest lineup, "shotgun for gun", the improvement of the book strength is not only a little bit, the third line is very competitive. It doesn’t seem to be a big deal to rush out of Asia, and even in the 2022 World Cup, it is expected to be able to wrestle with the European and South American strong teams, instead of repeating the awkwardness of the national football team breaking into the World Cup for the first time in 2002, but in all three games and netting 9 eggs, think about it. It's all exciting!
Of course, for now, these are just for the self-entertainment of netizens. The national football team has been weak for many years, and the results have been stagnant for a long time or even regressed. It has long been difficult to win against the neighbors of Japan and the South Korean team, and even the former "little brother" in Southeast Asia is not very sure. The fans have been stuck in their chests for many years, and their depressed emotions have not been released. Now they heard that they have boarded the speedboat of "Naturalization". It is almost like seeing the light in the dark, so hungry and smelling the smell of rice, it is inevitable to be happy. Imagine together.
It is not long for Chinese football to open the door to naturalization, probably more than two years. Starting from the naturalization of Hou Yongyong, Li Ke and others who have blood ties in Beijing Guoan in 2018, they have developed into the naturalized non-blood relationship of Exxon, Fernando, Alan and Luo Guofu. Li Ke and Exxon have represented the national football In the official game appeared on the stage. However, the results of the national football team have not changed drastically in the past two years. At present, it only ranks second in the group in the top 40 of the world preliminaries. In the case of one game less, it is 8 points behind the top Syria. Ike, who won the golden boot of the Chinese Super League Sen was lost on the front line. Due to his poor record, the former national football coach Lippi left his mark.
This has caused the Chinese Football Association to be more cautious in dealing with the controversial topic of naturalization. Although the relevant work continues to advance, it is not done with fanfare. According to the official language, it is "steadily advancing." Because although naturalization can improve the national football's immediate combat power in a short period of time, can it help the national football team to enter the 2022 World Cup and even fully promote the improvement of the Chinese football level, just like Schrodinger's cat.
There are many factors that affect the results of football matches. In addition to the most prominent factor of the player’s hard power, the coach’s command and dispatch, the players’ on-the-spot state, the tacit understanding of each other, the opponent’s play, football culture, etc. are all important Variables.
Chinese football’s path of naturalization is indeed a bit compelling. On the one hand, the national team’s record has not been shot for a long time, the strength of the local international team is mediocre, and the slow development of youth training has led to an extremely scarce successor talent, which has developed into an endless loop. If there is no extraordinary action, it will be difficult for the National Football Team to get out of this desert sand sea in a short time. Looking at the world, naturalization is also in line with the development trend of international football to some extent. The French national team with a large number of naturalized players won the World Cup in 1998 and 2018. Our neighbor, Japan, was the first to start with naturalization, which greatly improved the country's overall football level. Qatar in West Asia also relied on naturalized players to win 2019. Asian Cup champion. And from the perspective of the new naturalization policy adopted by FIFA this time, the wind of naturalization in international football may blow more violently in the future, and those who stick to the rules and hold the handicapped may be far behind.
It must be pointed out that naturalization alone does not necessarily mean success.
