So what are the requirements to "cap tie" a player?

FIFA drafted some new rules last year about the requirements for a player to switch between countries, and that has left some confusion about what is actually required to "cap tie" a player in the first place. The way I understand it, a player isn't tied to a country unless he plays for them in at least 1 "official" match, such as World Cup qualifiers, the just completed Nations League, etc. Friendly/exhibition games don't count.

The Nations League would have counted as a non friendly, but Musah didn't play. It's how we captied Dest

Yep. I saw some people (even the ESPN broadcast) saying that a player is cap tied if they play in 4+ friendlies, which I'm 99% sure isn't true

Definitely not.  Gio Reyna - who also had options thru his grandfather - played in 6 friendlies before this past weekend.  And Musah himself has played in 6 friendlies for the US.

Doubt it. England isn't going to call him up in The September window, and we have 3 chances to cap tie him there

Also, the atmosphere, is it always that out of control? Things flying out of the stands? Putting hands on the Official? Seemed bizarre to me.


Can be. Mexico fans are no strangers to filling the field with cups when they're not happy.  This my favorite example from it
