Dyke open over player criteria
Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has refused to condemn the idea of England using foreign-born players.
The whole row over who is eligible for England and who is not, has erupted after it emerged Manchester United's rising star Adnan Januzaj could, in theory, one day play for England.
Januzaj, who scored twice on his full debut for Manchester United last weekend, was born in Belgium and could also represent Albania, Turkey, Serbia or Kosovo - who are not currently a recognised FIFA nation.
However, he would also be eligible to play for England if he remained in the country for five years after his 18th birthday, which was in February this year.
And Dyke admits the situation is not quite so straightforward.
"We need to look at the rules," said Dyke.
"We need to look at what other countries are doing and whether we are putting ourselves at a competitive disadvantage by not doing it.
"I am not saying, let's grab him or not grab him.
"It is a wider case because his is not the only case.
"Longer term, what I really care about is that kids coming through the system have the opportunity to play at the highest level if they have got the talent."
