    Dirty Tricks Dept.

    The Daily Telegraph has come up with this story from Germany.

    "Germany to invoke 1898 rule to stop Harry Kane playing for England at Euros. Under the Foreign Nationals (Football) Act, passed by the Bundestag, players can only represent the country in which they are resident"

    "With Harry Kane leading the line, Euro 2024 is regarded as Englandís best chance of winning an international tournament since their World Cup victory in 1966.

    But Germany, the host nation for the Euros, has come up with a plan to thwart the Three Lions by using an obscure law to prevent Kane from playing for the country of his birth.

    Under the Foreign Nationals (Football) Act, passed by the Bundestag in 1898, players can only represent the country in which they are resident.

    The law has never been enforced, but it remains on the statute books and with the Euros less than three months away the Deutscher Fussball-Bund, Germanyís equivalent of the Football Association, is in secret talks with the countryís government to put it to use."


    All credit to the Telegraph journo Lirpa Loof for discovering what the Germans are plotting.
