Why is he baffled?
According to EU regulations (I know it's not UEFA but the logic is the same apparently) a snail is a fish and a carrot is a fruit. If an egg has two yokes it's not an egg, so if an English player trained in Portugal, he's not English. I hope I cleared it up for MP.

Maybe we should plan to have a home/club-grown keeper as third choice. Using three of 17 spots available for goalkeepers seems a bit of a waste, if it limits our tactical flexibility.
