    It looks like Nicolaievsky recently transferred from Gimnasia La Plata to Almagro. According to Wikipedia, he had nine senior appearances for Gimnasia, who play in the first division. However, Almagro is in the third division, so quite a step down for him.

    Kuzniecka is in the Boca academy, nowhere near the first team, so I don't think he should be included in this list. Here is something I found from a Jewish community newspaper in Argentina:

    Cvit means Flower in Croatian Dalmatian language. Several Croatian surnames with the root Cvit: Cvitanovic (footballers), Cvitesic (actress), Cvitkovic.
    Also, roots Cvet, Cvjet - have the same meaning Flower. His origins are from island of Brac.

    Some other people with the same surname:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jakša_Cvitanić
    https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cvitani
    https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q16493497 (both surnames are Croatian)

    https://books.google.hr/books?id=aIBmjEJePAgC&pg=PA160&lpg=PA160&dq=cvitanic wikipedia&source=bl&ots=xfBcPLRuWD&sig=NkE6h0bOzwFgcsOuNlockeuzJ0o&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiOvIfl1M3PAhXrJZoKHaROCnk4FBDoAQgZMAA#v=onepage&q=cvitanic wikipedia&f=false

    Wikipedia is not so reliable, other sources would be much more helpful.

    You can check the Transfermarkt website, many players in the new world have double citizenship or both surnames. Solid starter to begin with.:cool:

    Potential players:

    Felipe Fritz, birthplace Coronel (often Jewish surname)

    I am aware of that. Sometimes surname talks louder than the person. For example, Argentine-Croatian tennis coach Daniel Orsanic has Jewish grandmother (Ivana Berger), she is from Croatia also. They got married and left in Argentina cca 1945.

    This is his grandfather: https://hr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Oršanić

    Daniel Orsanic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Orsanic

    Surname Orsanic is Croatian for sure.

    By the way, nice link you posted, simple and easy to use.

    I’ve never found anything for him. But Matt Turner is of Jewish descent on his father’s side and would qualify for Israeli citizenship.

    Highly unlikely. Surname is not a known Jewish one and he grew up in Alabama which has so few Jews.
