    This has been going on in English soccer for awhile, a few Americans who signed with EPL teams couldn't get their work permit to play because of the strict laws in England.

    Well it is common sense to get all the required legal paperwork in order so these American soccer players can report to their respective teams in the UK. Do these guys realize that they are going into another sovereign country and that either a passport or a work permit is required.icon_question.gif
