    The American Soccer League of the 1920s had a lot of Scottish and English players throughout its decade of existence, and I know that from about 1926 onward the league started seeing more Austrians and Hungarians enter the league. One thing I want to know is what other ethnicities/nationalities were represented. For example, were there any Russians or Yugoslavs? This is unlikely, but were there any African players? Asian players? Latin American players?

    Those are the internationals I could find in Colin Jose's ASL book. I excluded Canada, Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, Austria, and Hungary, all of which were greater than any on this list.
