The list is hightly misleading. Many of those players have no real connection to the land of their parents. This is similar to listing the Brazilian players and saying they are from Portugal or the Argentines and saying they are from Italy.

Many "Jamaicans" have no real connection to Jamaica as there parents could never afford for them to visit, Should they be called just English?
