Instructions

  1. Go to the Soccerbase website and search for a player.
  2. Click on the correct link to go to the player's page. Be sure is the correct right person.
  3. The page URL should look like https://www.soccerbase.com/players/player.sd?player_id=#####, where "#####" indicates a number.
  4. Copy ONLY that number
  5. Add that ID to the Wikidata item about the player, using P2193
  6. Add to the external links section the text:
    {{Soccerbase}}

Alternative method

  1. Add to the external links section the text:
    {{Soccerbase|id=#####|name=Name}}
    where "#####" is the number you've copied, and "Name" is the person's name
  2. Searching for "David Beckham", you'll reach this page: https://www.soccerbase.com/players/player.sd?player_id=547
  3. Copy "547" and then write: {{Soccerbase|id=547|name=David Beckham}}

Note that, since this will almost certainly go on the external link section, you should add a * before the template text to include it as a list item.
