Just read this article on the BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/37194671 which says Graeme Jones has joined Martinez as his assistant in the Belgium national team. It got me thinking, how many other ex players have gone on to manage/coach on the international scene? Could we even make a XI from them?

So far I can think of Graeme Jones & Peter Taylor. Was Neville Southall ever a GK coach for Wales?

Colin Murphy managed Vietnam (hence the war)
Kevin Fallon managed New Zealand
Bob Houghton who was assistant manager at one time managed both China and India

good call on Fallon. I avoided managers as he said players. :winking:

ps loads of former players have coached overseas clubs just not nations. for example Alan Dicks, Eddie May and Eddie Firmani
