5 Current Premier League Players Who Represent Smaller Countries

5 Current Premier League Players Who Represent Smaller Countries

2. Cuco Martina (Everton & Curaçao)

Cuco Martina, who signed for Everton last summer after a couple of years at Southampton; was born in the Netherlands, but he represents Curacao. Curacao is a small Caribbean island with a population of around 160, 000. It was part of the Netherlands Antilles before the country was dissolved into five separate nations in 2010.

As captain, Martina led Curaçao their first ever Caribbean Cup win this year. The small nation also took part in their 5th ever Gold Cup tournament this year, their first since 1973.

1. Nahki Wells (Burnley & Bermuda)

Nahki Wells should have a decent chance of becoming the new Bermudan top scorer in the Premier League. The 27-year-old striker has three straight seasons with 10+ goals to his name in the Championship and that prompted Burnley to dish out £5m for his services in the summer.

The recent 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers ended in the CONCACAF 2nd round for Bermuda. Wells scored three times in the 1st round against the Bahamas in an 8-0 aggregate win, but they were dropped from the competition with a 1-0 loss to Guatemala.
