2. Toby Flood Germany

His maternal grandfather was German actor Albert Lieven, who appeared in The Guns of Navarone. Despite his 60 England caps, Flood has said he’d love to play for Germany, saying: “I have always been proud of being German. My mum is the last remaining true Lieven and she went back to Germany about ten years ago to put together a family tree so if there was a chance to connect into that it would be great.”
