Under this scenario, the elements with dual or multiple nationality began to take on greater relevance in Videna.
So the name of alexander robertson It appeared on the horizon some time ago, but recently it gained more strength because it would have chosen to play for the ‘Bicolor’ leaving aside countries like England, Scotland and Australia. However, many wonder who is this footballer who arouses curiosity (and enthusiasm) among national fans.
alexander robertson was born in Scotland, but grew up in Sydney. She is from a Peruvian mother and an Australian father, Mark Robertson, who has a past in the ‘Socceroos’. Later the family moved to England, where they reside to this day.

“He has several nationalities, but he wants to play for Peru. He can play as a mixed midfielder or a central midfielder, he has good handling of the ball, as all the players Manchester asks for should be. He played with the Under 17 of England”, Pablo Bossi, head of the FPF Recruitment department, said last Wednesday.
Now, Bossi has asked alexander robertson that you can start your procedures to obtain the DNI and thus be eligible for the Peruvian selection. “The problem is in the paperwork, because her mother left when she was very young (from Peru) and so she does not have her DNI and she does not have her birth certificate either. She is managing to find the papers to start the paperwork. We are working together with her to be able to do the documentation so that she can be summoned, ”he added in an interview with Successful Sports.
The talented player has played for Manchester City since 2017, although he spent the last season on loan at Ross County in the Scottish Premiership. He also played alongside Jude Bellingham (a Borussia Dortmund star) in England’s youth teams, passing through the Under 16s, Under 17s and Under 18s.
