QWERTY Counts in Scrabble

I was watching the CCL game on Tuesday night between Houston and San Francisco (Panama) and had a random thought when the back of Nate Jaqua's jersey was shown. I wonder how many players have a Q in their last name? I know, not the most useful information in the world, but once it popped in my head I had to find out. Here is the "Q" list from MLS, USL1, and a few of the big leagues in Europe (last names only).

Barcelona leads the way with 4 Q players on their first team and Quique and Aquivaldo Mosquera are the only double Q players.

Nate Jaqua - Houston Dynamo
Santino Quaranta - DC United

Francis Coquelin - Arsenal
Frank Wiafe Danquah - Newcastle United
Steed Malbranque - Sunderland
Nigel Quashie - West Ham United

Julien Quercia - Auxerre
Carlos Henrique - Bordeaux
Frédéric Piquionne - Lyon
William Vainqueur - Nantes
Damien Perquis - Sochaux


Robert Acquafresca - Cagliari
Ricardo Quaresma - Inter
Vincenzo Iaquinta - Juventus
Alberto Aquilani - Roma
Giovanni Pasquale - Udinese
Fabio Quagliarella - Udinese

Paul Quinn - Motherwell

Gerard Piqué - Barcelona
Rafael Márquez - Barcelona
Albert Jorquera - Barcelona
Sergio Busquets - Barcelona
Sébastien Squillaci - Sevilla
Aquivaldo Mosquera - Sevilla
Javier Casquero - Getafe
Quique - Real Valladolid
Jesús Vázquez - Recreativo de Huelva

Felipe Quintero - Atlanta Silverbacks
Nicolas Mosquera - Miami FC
Cédric Joqueviel - Montreal Impact
Roger Levesque - Seattle Sounders

I didn't find any Q without a U combos. Are there any out there?
