Note that:

  • inappropriate columns can be omitted, e.g. if the player has never played in a country with a League Cup competition, or in a Continental competition;
  • assists columns are against consensus, and should not be included (and should be removed if they are already in an article).
  • ideally, each row should be individually sourced. If this is not done, reference(s) for the entire table should appear within this section;
  • some FAQs are answered and examples linked at this talk page discussion;
  • as to repetition of league division, this thread suggests that, while "there is a slight advantage in accessibility when you repeat cells, rather than rowspanning them", "our readers won't be disadvantaged noticeably if we don't repeat every cell that contains duplicate data".
