Stoke striker Bojan blocked committing to Serbia

Stoke City striker Bojan Krkic is being blocked from playing for Serbia.

The Sun says he has been capped once by the Spanish, but Serbia were desperate for him to switch allegiances.

Bojan's father is a Serb, but the striker's appearance in a World Cup qualifier for his country of birth makes him ineligible to change nationalities.

FIFA only allow swaps if the player has not played in an A-grade competitive match, meaning Bojan has to fight for his place with Spain if he wants to resurrect his brief international career.
