Damn good answer Tallman.  :beermug:

The thing is Croatia's squad did not gain recognition by FIFA until 1992.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport3/worldcup2002/hi/team_pages/croatia/newsid_1791000/1791607.

Jarni played 4 matches for Yugoslavia then turned out for Croatia versus Romania on December 22, 1990 before returning to play for Yugoslavia three more times the following year. He played for Croatia again after that, satisfying the A, B, A, B relationship but the player I'm looking for played for Country A, then Country B, then Country A, then Country B under full international sanction.

http://www.rsssf.com/miscellaneous/jarni-intl.html

I double-checked with the FIFA fixtures and results between Croatia and Romania and the earliest match listed is the match played during WC 1998 and not the 1990 encounter.

True that, di Stefano represented Argentina, Spain and Colombia. He played for ARG in the late 40s and ESP in the late 50s and showed for COL in between. His days with COL are not recognised by FIFA and, well, there is no overlap in his representation of either country.
