    Copyrights:
    I took the time to write this FAQ out, so I would appreciate it that no one
    copies it or puts it on their  website without my expressed permission.
    This rules out plagiarizing and all that other fun stuff.  I don't care if you
    print up a copy for yourselves, as it would probably be much easier for
    you to create the rosters by doing that.  Any ways, enough of the
    legal mumbo-jumbo.

    **1. Introduction**
    For largely unexplained reasons, EA Sports decided to only put a certain
    amount of international rosters into FIFA 2004.  Notable teams, like
    Holland and Canada (and the game was made in Canada!!), were left
    out of the game completely.  Hence, I have assembled these rosters and
    what teams they can be found on in the game.  Finally, this is my first
    FAQ, so it is far from perfect.
    
    I've started with the teams that I know best, but if you would like to email
    me another international roster that I have not included, you can reach
    me at (minus the "nospamplease" part):
    
    canuckgrnospamplease@yahoo.com
    
    
    
    **2.  How To Create the Rosters**
    
    So how do I create these excluded international rosters you say?  Use
    the following steps to complete this task:
    
    -Find a team who's jerseys are the same colour as the team your creating
    (eg. I used the English 3rd Divisions teams Boston for Holland and
    Kidderminster for Canada.)
    WARNING:  Under no circumstances should you use
    Northampton of the English 3rd Division.  For some reason the
    game has a defender listed as the GK and will not allow you to
    swap in a real keeper.
    
    -Go to player swap and trade in the players of the countries national
    teams.  One thing to note, the computer can be very fickle when it comes
    to swapping out starting GK's.  To solve this, go to Team Management and
    place the goaltender your interested in onto the substitutes bench.  This
    should allow you to swap him in, as long as each team will still have 2
    goalkeepers on their roster.
    
    -Go to save, then to squads, and rename the unsaved squad file to Dutch
    (or something like that) and save it.
    
    -Start a new career and select default rosters.
    
    -Go to the screen where "play next game", "more options", and "career
    save appear", and then quit the career.
    
    -Go back to the save screen and save the default rosters.
    
    With this process, when ever you want to play as Holland, simply load the
    altered squad file. When your done, simply load the default rosters back in
    and every things back to normal.  One thing to note is that in your altered
    squad files, the swapped players will no longer appear on their club teams.
    So if you made a Holland team, Bergkamp would no longer appear on Arsenal.
    
    
    **3.  Excluded International Rosters**
    
    Note:  I don't really care if a player has stated they have retired
    internationally (eg. Bergkamp).  If he's in the game and is decent, I'll list
    him.
    As well, please note that not all of the players may fit on a teams roster.
    In some cases, you  may have to choose who makes the cut and
    who does not.
    
    The players shall be displayed as follows:
