Sierra Leonean born Finnish youngster, Glen Kamara has been named in the English premier league side, Arsenal squad for the 2014-15 Champions League.
The young midfielder who was born in Sierra Leone and also carries a Finnish citizenship was named in the Gunners squad together with both new forwards Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez.
The Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has selected 38 members for the squad, with 13 “List B” players included.
According to the regulation, there can be a maximum of 25 players on List A and an unlimited number on List B to make up the final squad. Players are eligible for List B if they are 21 years of age or younger and have been eligible to play for the club for at least two uninterrupted years since their 15th birthday.
Also between the two lists, every Champions League side must have at least eight home-grown players, and at least four of those must be club-trained.
A home-grown player is one who has spent a minimum of three years registered in the club in the same association over a period of time up to and including the season during which he turned 21 years of age. While a club-trained player must have spent at least three years registered in the club selecting him.
This differs from Premier League rules, which require eight home-grown players but have no club-trained requirement.
