As with previously installments of Football Manager, FM19 has certain files that will prevent you from managing certain national teams and from current real players showing up in their rosters due to licensing issues.

The national teams with the problem:
  • Germany
  • China
  • South Korea
  • Japan

How to fix

Fixing this is relatively simple.

Go to:

Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ Football Manager 2019 \ data \ database \ db \ 1910 \ lnc \ all

[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > Football Manager 2019 > data > database > db > 1910 > lnc > all

Here you will find 3 or more files:
  • fake.lnc
  • lic_dan_swe_fra.lnc
  • nleague.lnc.
Simply delete these 3 files and create a new savegame, or wait until the next time international squads are announced on your current savegame.

Note: If your saved game was started before the 19.1.0 patch, you need to repeat the steps above to the 1901 folder as well.

Here is the complete list of what is unlocked by deleting them:
  • National teams of Germany, China, South Korea and Japan become playable.
  • Enable player pics for national teams of The Netherlands and France.
  • Fix real name of Oliver Kahn (he's with nickname Jens Mustermann).
  • Fix names for various Danish, Swedish and French competitions.
  • Restore real players for the team Albirex Niigata (Singapore).
  • Fix colors and names for various clubs, stadiums, cities in Asian countries.

Enjoy :)
