Best Answer

1. Any player who is a naturalized citizen of a country in virtue of that country's laws shall be eligible to play for a national or representative team of that country.

2. If a player has been included in a national or representative team of a country for which he is eligible to play pursuant to paragraph 1, he shall not be permitted to take part in an international match for Another Country. Accordingly, any player who is qualified to play for more than one national association (i.e. who has dual nationality) will be deemed to have committed himself to one association only when he plays his first international match in an official competition (at any level) for that association.

3. The only players exempt from this provision are those whose nationality has been changed not voluntarily but as the result of an international decree either granting independence to a region or ceding part of one country to another.

Are you American if you were born in America but speak Russian?

Nationality is subjective, since some people consider where they were born to be their nationality while others consider where they currently live to be their nationality. Language tends to not influence nationality. For example, if you were born in Russia but moved to America and speak english, you could still very well say you're Russian since it's where you were born. Language doesn't generally determine nationality, but people can identify with any nationality they choose.
