Melissa Vargas has applied for Turkish citizenship, report the local and foreign media.
There are laws in Turkey that allow applying for citizenship in various ways. If she takes some steps toward citizenship, FIVB also will need to improve it.
Melissa is the Cuban-born player and she had a debut in this national team at the age of 13. She is now 19 and there is plenty of time for her to play at the national team level. If Turkey accepts her application, it will be a huge reinforcement.
