There was so much British immigration to Buenos Airies, Sao Paulo, Monteviedo and Rio de Janiero around the turn of the 19/20thC that all those guys were probably born and raised in Brazil or at least south america. There is a fair chance their parents were also born there.

At the root of the development of football in Russia too were British. The Charnok brothers .

This is the Brazilian national team, that in the 60s was basically the English, French and Japanese disporas. About half of those with English names were born in Brazil that time, half were just expats. English and French immigration to Brazil was much smaller than in Argentina and smaller than in Chile and Uruguay - and maybe that a reason for rugby to be small in Brazil for so long time.

But don't judge Brazilians by surnames. Brazil received millions of European and Asian immigrants in late 19th century/Early 20th century. There are millions of Brazilian with Italian, German, Spanish, Syrian/Lebanese (mostly Christians), Japanese (biggest number of people with Japanese origin in the world outside Japan), Polish, Ukranian/Russian/Lithuanian* surnames.

Of course the majority of Brazilians have Portuguese surnames, either because of Portuguese families (second biggest number of immigrants in 19th/20th centuries, after Italians) or because of the Colonial times (as Portuguese settlers, African slaves and poor freemen, mixed between Africans, Portuguese and Indigenous, had Portuguese surnames). Brazil is a mixed country and anyone can look a Brazilian.


*Maybe this is interesting for you, more than 300.000 people arrived in Brazil from the Russian Empire/Soviet Union in Early 20th century (many Jews, many Germans and Poles, but many Ukranians, Lithuanians and Russians as well... I have a friendly with Russian grandfathers that came from Harbin, in Northern China, where there were a consderable Russian community). This means now more than a million Brazilians with families that came from former Russian Empire/Soviet Union.

In Russia the land in the East is given to all comers and the Old Believers from South America are beginning to return.
