Over the years, it’s fair to say that the Hull City faithful have seen quite a variety of players ranging from Goole to Guyana and everywhere inbetween, here is a look at some of the players that played a part for their national team during their career whilst spending some of that time in the black and amber of the Tigers:
England – Nick Barmby & Harry Maguire
The Hull-born lad made 23 appearances for the Three Lions in total, playing under four different managers between 1995 and 2001.
The most noticeable contributions of Barmby’s tenure include three substitute appearances during Euro ’96 as well as starting in that famous 5-1 humiliation of Germany in September 2001. Barmby also scored England’s first goals under Glenn Hoddle and Sven-Goran Eriksson’s management in 3-0 victories over Moldova and Spain respectively.
Despite just over a year as an England international, it is fair to say he has had quite some impact on the nation for his performances during the 2018 World Cup.
Maguire scored his first England goal during the 2-0 win over Sweden in a World Cup quarter-final.
Honduras – Maynor Figueroa
The Honduran international has made an astonishing 146 caps and counting since 2003, making him the joint second-most capped Honduras player. Figueroa featured in the 2010 and 2014 World Cups and also joined the U-23 squad as an overage player during the London Olympics in 2012.
Jamaica – Ian Goodison & Theodore Whitmore
Both Goodison and Whitmore made over 120 international appearances in careers spanning more than ten years for Jamaica.
Whitmore scored an impressive 24 goals from midfield before retiring in 2004. He has been in and out of the managerial job at Jamaica since 2007 and recently signed a new four-year contract with the JFF.
Gabon – Daniel Cousin
Cousin scored 13 goals in his 14-year spell as a Gabonese international. He made 56 appearances in that time including eight years as captain of Gabon before been named general manager of the national team after retiring from playing in 2014.
