With his appearance at Anfield at the weekend, Patrice Evra became the 17th Frenchman to represent West Ham.

Does it have to be a competitive match to count? Hopefully come August we’ll be adding two Brazilians as well.

Apart from Pablo Armero on loan (do they count?), West Ham have never had a colombian player before, I believe

2 more additions this week.

Lucas Perez becomes our 8th Spaniard and half of those 8 Spaniards are still with the club!
Carlos Sanchez is our second Colombian. Half of those are also still with the club. :D

In our recent EFL (Checkatrade) Trophy match, West Ham were represented in a senior, professional football match by Joseph Anang (Ghana), Bernardo Rosa (Brazil) and Xandé Silva (Portugal). They join Raphael Spiegel and Noha Sylvestre (both Switzerland) on a secondary list of foreign nationals to have represented West Ham United in professional action. I have added this list at the bottom of the OP because they have not represented our first team, but have featured in senior competition. The EFL cup format is a bit of a grey area.... :?

Any reason you haven't included RoI players?

Many reasons, the main one being that the information was much harder to come by.

Pedro Obiang called up by Equatorial Guinea for Nations Cup Qualifier. He reportedly needs international clearance to switch allegiance, despite having never represented Spain at full international level. One to keep an eye on.

We have a number of potential dual-nationality African/English players that represented West Ham in the recent Checkatrade Trophy match versus Yeovil:

Sean Adarkwa - England/Ghana
Ajibola Alese - England/Nigeria
Olatunji Akinola - England/Nigeria
Emmanuel Longelo - England/DR Congo
Jeremy Ngakia - England/DR Congo

There are probably loads more, but those are the ones that played most recently.

And one that's nice and easy, a debut for 16 year-old summer signing Sebastian Nebyla (Slovakia).
