The only White House tenant I've found is Kennedy Mweene, winner of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations with Zambia. As to bin Laden, a couple of Saudi players appearing at USA '94 were almost identical to him...!

Equatorial Guinea fields a guy called Dio.
"Dio" in Italian means "God": he is surely a divine footballer...

From Swaziland I expected more a player named Eddie Murphy. Never saw so many Eddy Murphy look-a-likes (including Eddy Murphy smiles) when I visited that country in 1999.
According to U.S. Soccer Federation 2014 Men’s National Team Media Guide, Eddie Murphy was a player of the US MNT, scoring in the Olympic qualifier against Mexico in 1959. (Note: according to, Bill Looby scored). On Wikipedia his first  name is spelled Ed.

They both have highlands and lowlands.

Also (and I only know this from reading Swazi newspapers), Princess Alexandra and her Scottish husband Angus Ogilvy visited Swaziland on several occasions in the 1960s, including the independence celebrations, so they would have watched the annual football matches around that period.
