Name your XI for but every position has to be a different nationality.

Saw this pop up on another forum I go on so thought it might be a fun thing to do to pass the time. Can it even be done? I still need to think of mine but look forward to seeing others answers.

Excellent choice of Ron Davies at centre forward

Okay...

Pukki out - van Wolfswinkle - Dutch (nice guy and I think hughton's tactics destroyed him but his record is atrocious)

Hernandez out - Becchio - Argentina (go 4-3-3)

Olsson out - Franke - German

This is a great thread. Here’s my effort...

Tim Krul (Netherlands)
Steen Needergaard (Norway)
Timm Klose (Switzerland)
Duncan Forbes (Scotland)
Mark Bowen (Wales)
Martin O’Neil (NI)
Martin Peters (England)
Onel Hernandez (Cuba)
Emi Buendia (Argentina
Wes Hoolahan (Republic Ireland)
Teemu Pukki (Finland)

I could easily have chosen lots of different players in different positions but that would mean sacrificing someone else. Such as Bryan Gunn going in goal would mean I’d have to lose Duncan Forbes or putting in a Huckerby, a Crook or a Holt would mean losing Martin Peters. Tough choices but fun to do.
This isn’t a “best ever City XI” but under those rules, I reckon they’d give anyone a game.

Emi Buendia (Argentina)
Damien Francis (Jamaica)
Thomas Trybull (Norway)
Onel Hernandez (Cuba)
Teemu Pukki (Finland)
Iwan Roberts (Wales)
