    Likely the circumstances differ widely country to country and I doubt there is a single (or even small set) of correct answers here. Ask about a specific instance your interested in rather than in generalities please. – wax eagle Jun 18 '14 at 12:15
  • Usually there is no relation between the number they use in their team and the number their use in the international team. – gbianchi Jun 18 '14 at 13:59
