Soccer's world governing body FIFA decided to remove the age limit on changing national teams when its congress convened in Nassau, Bahamas on Wednesday.

FIFA congress passed the proposal by 58 percent in favor of it.

Under established rules players with dual nationality, who had already played for a country's national team at youth level, were only allowed to switch loyalties until the age of 21.

The rule change does not affect any player who was played for the full national team as they are barred from switching nations.
