Records and notable players[edit]

Joe Connor was the first Brentford player to be capped at international level, playing and scoring for Ireland in a 2–0 victory over Scotland in March 1903.[2] John Buttigieg is Brentford and Malta's most-capped international and won 22 of his 97 caps while a Brentford player.[3][4] Idris Hopkins scored the most international goals while a Brentford player, with two for Wales.[5] Daniel O'Shaughnessy won two Finland caps without appearing for the first team during his two seasons with Brentford.[6][7] In June 2018, Henrik Dalsgaard became Brentford's first contracted to player to play at a major international tournament, when he started in Denmark's opening match at the 2018 World Cup.[8]
