Players per Country Overview

For Netherlands also youth players (as far as they are known to us) that never made it to the first team considered, which make a comparison of the totals per player useless. This is also the case for Turkey.

In general we have use the country of birth of players to determine their nationality, this often matches, but especially for Suriname there are many more players that might have the Suriname nationality than that have been assigned by us to Suriname.

Germany has a high average of played matches per player mostly because of the two Dutch German players Werner Schaaphok and Heinz Stuy.
