Zinedine Zidane for instance, many people know him to be a citizen of France. That is indeed very true, but do you know that Zidane's father is an Algerian? This simply implies that Zidane's original citizenry is Algerian. I'm guessing you're surprised right? Well, it may also come as a surprise to you that, Zinedine Zidane has never played a single game for Algeria throughout his career, but France.

Another example is Paul Pogba of Manchester United, who is also a citizen of France currently. But his father is from Guinea, which now makes his original citizenry to be Guinean. But Paul Pogba also has never played for Guinea since he started playing professional football.
