Short International Careers, Part Fourteen

1- Hans-Josef ‘Juup’ Kappelmann
West German defender/midfielder Juup Kappelmann represented Koln and Bayern Munich in the 1970s. His Bayern teammates included Beckenbauer, Muller, Hoeness, among others.
He only managed to earn 5 caps in 1973 and 1974. He was part of the 1974 World Cup winning squad, though he was an unused substitute.

4- Bernard Zenier
French striker Bernard Zenier had long spells at Metz and Nancy in the late 70s and early 80s. He also turned out for Bordeaux (winning a league title in 1984) and Olympique Marseille before returning to his first club Metz in 1986.
He became France’s top goalscorer for the 1986/87 season.
He earned only five caps spread around a decade (1977/87) and never seemed likely to achieve a long International career, despite more than adequate club record.

5- Adick Koot
Dutch defender Adick Koot was part of PSV Eindhoven’s successful squad of the 198s0s and early 90s. His place at club level was far from secure due to stiff competition, therefore it is somewhat surprising that he even managed 3 caps (all earned in 1988 and 1989).
