On the other hand eg we can find such a league as the US Major League Soccer which had only one player. Among the divisions of the second level, the most numerous league was Qatargas League, with 7 players from the Oman and Yemen national teams. The most “international” representation was the Australia, because the footballers from this country play on a day-to-day basis in 13 leagues, and only 3 of them participate in the homeland league.
