TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwan wants Ross County central midfielder Tim Chow (周
定洋) to play at Asia Cup matches later this year, but it is not clear yet whether he will receive his Taiwanese passport on time, reports said Wednesday.
Lawmakers invited the 23-year-old soccer player from Wigan near Manchester to a news conference in Taipei, where they pointed out that the country has no framework to help descendants of Taiwanese people return to the island and play for national sports teams.
Chow’s grandfather moved from Shanghai in China to Taiwan in the 1940s and later emigrated to Great Britain. [FULL STORY]
