In other words, if Kolzig were a citizen of the US, grew up in the US and never set foot in Germany, but was also a German citizen, he would not be allowed to play for Germany.

If however he somehow ended up in the US, was not a citizen, still never set foot in Germany, but was a German citizen, he would have been fine.


Of course they gave that up, quite rightly in my opinion.
Then again, we're talking about William Nylander, not Olaf Kölzig.
