League Of Nations

The impending arrival of Nick Proschwitz, Hull City's first German player, got me thinking about how many different nations have been represented in Black and Amber over the years. Using the 209 FIFA members as a guide, I started to make a list. Place of Birth or International representation counted as criteria. I got to 42. It's now up to 48 with help from the Tiger Nation.

2013 update: Maynor Figueroa makes 49!
