Bundesliga Brits

Here's our list of British players who've played in Germany.

And yes, thats right, it does say Danny Sonner, he played 21 times and scored 6 goals in 1993 for Preussen Koln (now known as Viktoria Koln). 6 goals is not bad, although Preussen Koln were in a low division. A very low division. The sort of division your granny could bag a couple of goals in to be honest. But at least Sonner got off his backside and got out there, playing football for a living in a different country, experiencing a new culture and generally broadening his mind. Respect due. And for that reason he deserves to makes our list, along with the likes of Keegan, Hughes, Woodcock, and of course, the Deutschland legend that was Alan McInally.
