A common fact of the signings is that the first six on the list are legionnaires and all with a career in soccer abroad, such as Darwin Cerén in the Houston Dynamo of the MLS, Nelson Bonilla, who remains firm in Thai soccer , a multi-champion in his country, like Pablo Punyed, who now defends Vikingur from Iceland.

The rest of the players on the list come from the Salvadoran league, where Alianza is the leader with three out of four spots.
