Wow! They take some effort to prepare for the Nations Cup 2012.
philippe Troussier is not an unknown man.
I'm wondering, how much the players will earn in the professional league. As I remember from the World Cup, a ghanaean national-player (I think it was Lee Addy) earns about 300 US-Dollar in Ghana league.

However, it's nice to see that they invest on development. Thanks to the oil.

Politicians in such countries are most of the time not realistic , remember S.Africa 2010.. For Eq Guinea, reaching the second round could be a good objective...

This is the country's president, not the prime minister. If you check out his history, you'll see he's a bit of a dictator and we shouldn't pay any attention to what he says as it is mostly rubbish

most of this politicians are not very realistic: organising and winning the cup is not teh same (remember S.Africa's president....): they put to much pressure on the team and the supporters
quarter finals could be a good objective for this team (one of the minnows in Africa just a few years ago)

The calibre of international statesmen is very poor these days. It seems there are no qualifications for the job of being a president, other than to fit into a suit and shake hands.

How the heck is Equatorial Guinea getting away with naturalizing so many players? Their latest squad featured just Brazilians, Spaniards, Ghanaians, Liberians, Ivorians and even a Colombian!

It is quite ridiculous.  They did the same to get their women's team to the 2011 World Cup finals.  Otherwise, they would never have qualified.  Not sure why FIFA isn't doing anything to investigate - it's obvious to everyone else that there is some 'rule bending' going on.

If these people have genuinely become naturalized citizens of the country, and fulfil the laws of that country, then they are allowed to play. Assuming that they also fulfil other FIFA requirements such as not having played for another country. It's not so different from what the Gulf countries do, or what the USA has done in the past.

Or are you saying that they aren't genuine citizens?

They are obviously genuine (otherwise of course they wouldn't be allowed to play smiley: wink), but some cases do make you question the methods a little. In Europe Poland appear to be one of the worst 'offenders', Nigerian-born Emmanuel Olisidebe played in the 2002 FIFA World Cup (international debut in 2000) after just 3 years in Poland, while in 2008 Roger Guerreiro (born in Brazil) played in the Euros after less than 2 years of residency (the Polish authorities admit to having 'fast-tracked' his application in time for the summer).

For the record, both players scored in their respective tournaments, so if the locals had any issues at the naturalised players they were probably quickly forgotten, just as the Equatorial Guinea squad was presumably warmly-recieved in 2011 (women's) and 2012 (men's) for their achievements.

It depends on the country, though, the Home Nations have their 'gentleman's agreement' that has stopped naturalised players from being called-up, even if players such as Manuel Almunia and Nacho Novo are eligible for England/Scotland respectively.

Equatorial Guinea allows people to become citizens at the President's whim. They don't need to have any connection with the country whatsoever. It's like giving out citizenship to people who come over on holiday.  Residency is not required.
