    what nationality is Daniel? it seems that I don't have him in my database.

  4. Daniel is Brazilian. He was 4,5 in the 13.0.0 database. I have not tried him on the 13.3.2 database.

    I can recommend to take advantage of importing all players from top clubs in a specific region; for example south america.

    It is also important to consider that you'll need the scouting knowledge to find staff or players from that particular country or region.
    I always select Brazil as one of the starting leagues as they have many youth talents and cheap great backroom staff.

    Hope this helps you. Have a nice day
