The Polish Team...

The Poles are doing very well. Poland 3 - Ecuador 0 and still plenty of time to go!

Oh sorry, did I say Poland. I meant the German team with their Polish-born Strikers who've scored all the goals for them!

I bet the actual Polish National team are sick to the teeth that there best strikers are playing for Germany!

Are they from the part of Poland that used to be Germany?

If so that part ceased to belong to Germany long before they were born :o)
The Germans simply have more money...

The way International football teams work these days is that you can play for a National side if you are eitehr:

a) A passport holder of that country (be it native or emigrant).
b) Your parents, or grandparents, where passport holders of that country.
c) You have played your football in that country for something like 5+ years.

It's entirely possible that the Poles in question have relatives linking them to Germany. I must say I haven't looked into the backgrounds of them to see why they actually play for Germany.

The national countries teams, much as the regional teams, have long ceased to have any identity beyond a dollar sign.
