Premier League: 14 Nations That Have Only Had One Top Flight Footballer

90min Logo By Jamie Hore of 90min | Slide 1 of 14: Defender-cum-midfielder Cana joined the Black Cats for £5m at the start of the 2009 campaign and was made club captain that season. 

Starring in a team that featured the likes of Darren Bent, Kenwyne Jones and Steed Malbranque, Cana lead the side to 13th in the league. Heady days considering Sunderland's current standing.

The Albanian, who began his professional career in France at PSG, played just the one season before being sold on to Galatasaray the following summer. 

Cana is also the most capped player in Albania’s history, playing in 92 international fixtures. He captained the side to their first ever appearance at a major tournament as they qualified for the 2016 Euros.
