  2. Oh and a ton of players from Suriname, but they aren't allowed to play for the Suriname national side if they live in Europe, so I guess they don't count.

  3. I've made a couple of lists like this before and gone through every squad list in all the leagues and it took forever. This time I 'cheated' and used the Castrol Index listings to come up with the players.

    I looked up Faroe Islands, Lebanon, Namibia, etc. and nobody was listed for those nations but in the back of my mind I thought there were a couple of players missing.

    Thanks for confirming this, I'll add the missing players to the list (although Gunnar Nielsen is currently at Tranmere Rovers and Ouwa Maazou is already up there)
