Eight new players for Suriname, but FIFA blocks Leerdam and Donk

Suriname may add eight new players to the selection of the national team by FIFA. But the arrival of Kelvin Leerdam and Ryan Donk has been blocked by the world football association.

The Surinamese Football Association dreams of a future participation in a World Cup and has been working on strengthening the selection for a while by attracting Dutch players with a Surinamese background. Since last year, those footballers can also come to Suriname through a so-called sports passport.

FIFA gave eight footballers permission to play for Suriname on Friday: Damil Dankerlui (FC Groningen), Ryan Koolwijk (Almere City FC), Dion Malone (NAC Breda), Ishan Kort (Almere City FC), Myenty Abena (Slovan Bratislava) , Nigel Hasselbaink (without club), Tjaronn Chery (Maccabi Haifa) and Roland Alberg (Roda JC).

Sports passport rejected

National coach Dean Gorré also wanted to welcome Kelvin Leerdam (Seattle Sounders FC) and Ryan Donk (Galatasaray), but FIFA rejected the request to play for Suriname. It is still unclear why. The Surinamese Football Association has asked FIFA for an explanation.

Jaïro Riedewald, currently under contract with Crystal Palace, is also high on the wish list of the Surinamese association, which recently celebrated its centenary.
