In an interesting interview to an Azeri sports website Rolandas Alijevas claimed that he is not a part of the Lithuanian National Team because he is Muslim.
Is there a hope for you to play for Lithuania NT?
You know, I should have been called to the Lithuanian NT this year, but for various reasons I wasn't called. I don't know why, maybe the fact that I'm Muslim has got something to do with it. I should be playing for Lithuanian team. Of course, this is just my opinion and could not be the case.
