Really Motta playing for Italy is no worse than the many Englishmen playing for Scotland/Ireland/Wales, ect. Motta is an Italian name after all.
Lots of Italian's migrated to South America in the last two centuries, quite a few players have a grandparent or two.

If a player has only played a friendly they can switch I think, if he'd played a qualifier or cup game he'd be locked to Brazil.
