Taider's bid to play for Tunisia turned down

TUNIS, April 17 (Reuters) - Tunisia's bid to have Toulouse midfielder Nabil Taider available at the World Cup finals has been turned down by FIFA, the Tunisian Football Federation said on Monday.

Tunisia had applied for a change of footballing nationality for the French-born striker, who won caps at junior level for the country of his birth but also qualifies for Tunisian citizenship through his parents.

Tunisia's application to FIFA has been ruled ineligible because Taider had already turned 21, the TFF said. The 22-year-od Taider is in his third season of French Ligue 1 football with Toulouse.

Tunisia are drawn against Saudi Arabia, Spain and Ukraine at the World Cup finals in Germany in June.
