In football, there some players who play for one country. Others decide to dump such country for different reasons. There are those who do such because of money hunting.

Sam was a German youth national player, starring in Germany's under-19 and under-20 teams. On 29 May 2013, Sam made his senior international debut for Germany in a friendly game against Ecuador in Boca Raton, Florida. On 8 May 2014, Sam was named to the 30-man provisional squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup by German national team manager, Joachim Löw.
