Officially… a famous player prefers the Syrian national team over Germany

The Syrian Football Association announced that Stuttgart player Mahmoud Dawoud will represent the Syrian national team starting from the upcoming March international break.

The 28-year-old previously played for Borussia Mönchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund, before moving to Brighton at the beginning of this season and then being loaned to Stuttgart last January.

Dawoud was born to a 100% Syrian family from the city of Amuda, near the city of Qamishli in Al-Hasakah Governorate, northeastern Syria, but the family immigrated in 1996 to Germany and the player grew up there.

Daoud has already played two international matches with the German national team in 2020, but there is still an opportunity to change his sporting nationality, as happened in many cases, most recently Brahim Diaz and Morocco.

According to the Syrian Federation’s announcement, Dawoud fulfilled all FIFA conditions and obtained official approval, and he will be present in Syria’s next camp for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Coach Hector Cuper’s squad is scheduled to play against Myanmar at home and in Saudi Arabia for the second group of World Cup qualifiers, which also includes Japan and North Korea.
