International career

In March 2009 UEFA web site listed Ananidze as one of three "key players" of Georgian under-17 team along with Nika Dzalamidze and Irakli Shekiladze.[4] In July 2009 Ananidze received and accepted Héctor Cúper's invitation into Georgian national team.[5] Ananidze told Russian media "don't worry about me. I made my choice. I am a Georgian and I will play for my country." (Russian: "переживать не стоит. Я сделал свой выбор. Я грузин и буду играть за сборную своей страны").[6]
