Players representing two countries

You might think that playing in a full international for two different countries was a rare distinction. However, the list below shows that it is hardly the case.
I have only included players who played matches for both their countries before our 1937 cut off point (which excludes the German Austrian anchluss players). I have also excluded the Irish players who represented  Ireland and  Northern Ireland or The Irish Free State.

Great Britain.

John Hawley Edwards (England-Wales)
Shrewsbury born John Hawley Edwards played for Shropshire Wanderers and The Wanderers. He was called in as a late replacement in England's third ever international against Scotland in Glasgow in 1874. He was the first treasurer of the Football Association of Wales and played in Wales' first ever international, also against Scotland in Glasgow, on 25th March 1876.

Jack Reynolds (Ireland - England)
Jack Reynolds was born in Blackburn but spent much of his youth in Ireland, his father being a soldier. Later Reynolds himself joined the army and  was posted to Ireland. Whilst there he played for Distillery- they were impressed enough to buy him out of the army and he began his career as a professional footballer. The Irish Football Association were under the impression that Reynolds was an Irishman  and when they selected him for the national team, he didn't tell them any different. He played 5 matches for Ireland (1890-91). At the end of the 1891 season he returned to England, joining West Bromwich Albion. 
In 1892 he was selected for England, for whom he won 8 caps.

Bobby Evans (Wales-England)
Evans was born in Chester.He played for Chester and Wrexham before progressing to Aston Villa and Sheffield United, winning 10 Wales caps between 1906–1910. 
 When Evans was at Sheffield United it was revealed that he had been born in Chester,
 which made him eligible to play for England, even though his parents were both Welsh.
 He was selected for England 4 times (including playing in 2 victories over Wales) in 1911 and 1912.

The Oriundi 

The Oriundi (Argentina-Italy)
During the Mussolini era (which in football terms was the Pozzo era) Italy relaxed their Nationality laws and went scouting for footballing talent in South America. Pozzo's 22 for the 1934 World Cup included 4 Argentinians and a Brazilian. The following represented both Italy and Argentina: 

Luis Felipe Monti 
The only man to play in a World Cup Final for two different countries.
