Sead Kolašinac made 14 appearances for Germany

Just like his former Schalke teammate Kevin-Prince Boateng, Kolašinac has played for two countries on the international stage. Before opting to play for his native country of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sead Kolašinac was a member of the German youth teams for a while.

Due to his talent, Kolašinac rose through the ranks in Germany quickly as he played for their U18s, U19s and U20s and it was only in 2013 that the defender made his international debut for Bosnia in a 2-0 defeat to Lionel Messi’s Argentina.

Though his parents were natives of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sead Kolašinac was born in Germany as his parents had migrated to the country at the time. The Schalke full-back was born on the 20th of June, 1993 in Karlsruhe a city in south-west Germany where he grew up.
