They are not supposed to cross boundaries. Dario Conca was mistakenly added to the list for Brazil. You can check the list in the editor under famous players for the country. I raised this and Diego Lugano's inclusion on the list in the Data Forum, so it should be removed sometime in the future. I guess we found special-edition regens!
I present to you the one you've all been waiting for, the brand new Vladimir Durković! Durković won 3 French league titles with Saint-Etienne in the late 60s, but was shot by a policeman in 1972. Let's hope this regen doesn't replicate that.
The Brazil Researcher has stated that the Famous Players list can include foreign players who played in the country's domestic league and done well, so that is the explanation for the likes of Conca and Lugano.
It is always good to get a new country on the list. Here are some more for me as well now that I am managing in the Championship and I have scouts scouring Europe (my save this patch was a journeyman one starting in the Blue Square North).
As for Chilavert, yes he is from Paraguay, but he was considered famous for his club career in Argentina, so the researchers from Argentina added him to the list that some of these are pulled from. Some researchers add foreign players and some do not.
Unless I've missed them, has there ever been a regen dubbed 'The New Maradona/Messi/Ronaldo(original & CR)Pele/Baggio(Roberto)/Cryuff/Platini/Schifo/Koeman/Van Basten/ and so on?
I've seen one dubbed the 'New Ronaldo' before I recall...? Why aren't there ever Pele's etc? New Messi's? Or am I missing that?
As far as i remember I think i seen Maradona and old Ronaldo in older FM's but never any of the others, which is strange as it seems these are the obvious players that youngsters would be touted, Especially Maradona, Pele, Messi and CR since they are the names dropped IRL when the press gets their eyes on a new youngster that a team is trying to buy.
I'd like so see new players being touted or dubbed current superstars in your game, for example in a few years a new player could be doubed the new Neymar or the new Raphaël Varane, then in a few more years youngsters could be touted as another regen player if the get good enough rep
