De­spite what has been largely re­ported in the me­dia, Liam Jordan never re­ceived New Zealand cit­i­zen­ship and says the only coun­try he is el­i­gi­ble to play for is South Africa. “We never got New Zealand cit­i­zen­ship, even though we lived there for 11 years, be­cause with dad’s ill­ness they never granted it to us. When he passed away they fi­nally said that I could get it, but by then I was in South Africa,” Liam says. “I had to then go back to New Zealand to get it and I didn’t want to do that, so I just left it. It doesn’t re­ally help me in Europe.”
