UK Football Players Trivia Questions

1. At the 1982 World Cup, Joe Jordan was the only member of Scotland's squad to ply his trade outside the UK. For which Italian side was he playing at the time?

From Quiz
Not The English Abroad

Answer: AC Milan

Joe Jordan left Manchester United to join AC Milan in 1981, playing a total of 22 games in Serie A during the 1981-82 season. At the end of the season, despite his club's relegation to Serie B, Jordan was selected for Scotland's 1982 World Cup squad, the third World Cup in a row in which he had been selected for the national team. In Scotland's final group game against the Soviet Union, Jordan achieved a personal milestone when he became the first Scottish player to score in three successive World Cups. The game proved to be his final international, as he received an injury and was not selected again. Jordan eventually played five of his overall total of 52 internationals during his time at AC Milan.

2. Gerry Hitchens was the first England international to appear at the World Cup while playing for an overseas club, but which Italian side did he play for?

From Quiz The English Abroad -2- Choose The Answer

Answer: Inter

Having played for semi-professional side Kidderminster Harriers for two years, Gerry Hitchens made his professional debut in 1955 when he joined Cardiff City, subsequently moving to Aston Villa two years later. He remained there for four years, eventually scoring almost 100 goals in 160 appearances, during which time he also made his England debut, in which he scored his first international goal within 90 seconds in a friendly against Mexico in 1961. The same year he became one of the first English players to join an overseas club when he signed for Inter. This move made it more difficult for him to retain his international place, given the difficulties in the early 1960s of watching players in other countries. It was largely due to Hitchens' form, ending the 1961-62 season as Inter's top scorer, combined with injuries to other players, that saw manager Walter Winterbottom recall him to the England squad in May 1962, when he scored in a friendly against Switzerland. This was enough to give him a place for the 1962 World Cup in Chile in which he featured twice, scoring England's goal in their quarter-final defeat against Brazil. This proved to be the last of his seven international appearances, in which he had scored five goals, as Winterbottom's successor, Alf Ramsey, instituted a policy of not selecting players who were with overseas clubs. Hitchens eventually spent nine years in Italy, playing for a total of four clubs in that time, before retiring from professional football in 1969.

3. Born in Wrexham, Wales, this right back may have only got eight England caps, but he turned out 185 times for Liverpool in the 1990s. Can you name him?

From Quiz Three Lions Are Not Just From England

Answer: Rob Jones

Jones made his England debut in 1992, in a 2-0 win over France at Wembley after being selected by Graham Taylor. He started his club career with fourth division Crewe Alexandra in 1988, and joined Liverpool in 1991.

4. Which member of Wimbledon's "Crazy Gang" attracted attention by grabbing Paul Gascoigne's testicles in a match against Newcastle United, was sent off twelve times during his playing career, and later went on to become an actor?

From Quiz Mister Psycho

Answer: Vinnie Jones

The now defunct team Wimbledon's "Crazy Gang" got the reputation due to their habit of pranking each other and their managers, and their rough and ready style of play. The nickname became mainstream when John Motson, commentating on the cup final game against Liverpool where Wimbledon were the underdogs, quipped, "The Crazy Gang have beaten the Culture Club". Jones held the record for one of the fastest bookings in league football when he was at Chelsea, being booked three seconds in for fouling Sheffield United's Dane Whitehouse. He also got into trouble with Wimbledon over a video he presented entitled "Soccer's Hard Men", which was seen as encouraging unsporting behaviour. After retiring from football, Jones took up acting, playing 'hard man' roles in films such as Guy Ritchie's "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" and "X-Men", where he played the Juggernaut. (John Fashanu, incidentally, became a TV presenter - people of a certain age might remember him as the host of "Gladiators" in the '90s.)

5. This controversial Irish footballer moved from his home town club, Cobh Ramblers to Nottingham Forest. He then went to play for Manchester United. What was his name?

From Quiz A Fraction of the Cost

Answer: Roy Keane

Roy Keane's career has been littered with controversy as well as glory. During his career, he won seven Premier league titles and four FA Cups with Manchester United.

6. Who did Steve McManaman play international football for?

From Quiz Home Nations Players

Answer: England

Scouser Steve played club football for Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Manchester City. He won 37 caps for England scoring 3 goals during the mid to late 1990s.

7. With which club did England goalkeeper David James start his Football League career?

From Quiz England International Players

Answer: Watford

David Benjamin James was born in 1970 in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire and he began his professional career with his local team, Watford. Between 1989-1992 he made 89 appearances for The Hornets. He has since played for Liverpool (making his england debut in 1997 while he was at Anfield), Aston Villa, West Ham, Manchester City and Portsmouth. Chesterfield produced Gordon Banks, England's greatest ever goalkeeper (voted the 2nd-greatest of all-time behind Russia's Lev Yashin). Banks also played for both Leicester City and Stoke City, as did another great England #1, Peter Shilton.

8. Which England international striker scored 3 goals in the lower leagues of the Swedish game whilst on loan in 2000?

From Quiz Brits Abroad

Answer: Peter Crouch

Peter Crouch played 8 times for Swedish outfit IFK Hässleholm whilst on loan from White Hart Lane in 2000.

9. Who was in goal for England when they won the World Cup in 1966?

From Quiz English Goalkeepers

Answer: Gordon Banks

Gordon conceded only three goals the entire tournament, a penalty against Portugal in the semi-final, and two against Germany in the final. One of the greatest keepers of the 20th century, he made 73 caps between 1963 and 1972. His international career was cut short by a car crash in 1972 which resulted in the loss of sight in his right eye.

10. Who was the first black player to be called up for an England team?

From Quiz Black Pioneers of English Football

Answer: Jack Leslie

Leslie was playing for Plymouth Argyle in the 1930s when he was informed by his manager, Bob Jack, that he had been selected to play for England. However, according to, "He later received communication cancelling his call up to the England team, stating that they didn't realise he was a man of colour".

11. Which Scottish team did Rennes midfielder Jean-Jeol Pierre-Doumbe go out on loan to in the 2006/07 season?

From Quiz Soccer Transfers

Answer: Glasgow Celtic

Jean Joel went out on loan to Celtic for a season and never scored a goal until the final game of the season, the Scottish Cup final against Dunfermline. This would be the winning goal that handed Celtic the cup once again.

12. Tony Adams played for Arsenal between what years?

From Quiz One-Club Men

Answer: 1984-2002

He played from 1984-2002 scoring 32 goals from 504 games. He played for Arsenal Youth from 1980-1984.

They beat Ireland 9-2 in 1949 before qualifying for the 1950 tournament. The 8-0 win happened in 1985, and the Malta and Wales scores do not exist. England beat Turkey by 8 goals which is more than 7 goal margin in the win against Ireland.

Answer: Southampton

He made his international debut on 19th February 1992 at Wembley against France, which England won 2-0. It became a British record when Newcastle United bought him from Blackburn Rovers in 1996 for 15 million pounds and it definately was a value for money deal.

From Quiz England Greats: Their First Clubs [A]

26. Scotland's squad at the 1986 World Cup included striker Steve Archibald, who was playing for which Spanish side?

From Quiz Not The English Abroad

Answer: Barcelona

Steve Archibald moved from Tottenham Hotspur to Barcelona in 1984 where, in his first season, his 15 goals helped the club to their first league title in 11 years. Having been a regular fixture at Barcelona for two seasons, Archibald was selected for Scotland's squad for the 1986 World Cup. He played in one of the three group games, against West Germany, which the team lost 2-1, and which proved to be the last of his 27 international appearances. Archibald remained at Barcelona for another two seasons, but found himself left on the fringes of the first team following introduction of restrictions on the number of foreign players in Spain. He left the club in 1987, signing for English club Blackburn Rovers on loan, before he left Barcelona permanently to join Hibernian in 1988. Archibald played four internationals during his time at Barcelona.

27. Mark Hateley was selected for the England squad at the 1986 World Cup while playing for Italian club AC Milan. Two years later, he was part of England's squad for Euro 1988 while playing for which French club?

From Quiz The English Abroad -2- Choose The Answer

Answer: AS Monaco

Mark Hateley made his professional debut for Coventry City in 1978, where he stayed for five years before moving to Portsmouth in 1983. At the time, Portsmouth were a Second Division side, but his 22 league goals for them prompted AC Milan to sign him in June 1984, at the same time as they signed England midfielder Ray Wilkins. By the time he joined Milan, Hateley had already played 4 games for England, scoring his first goal in a 2-0 win against Brazil in Rio de Janeiro. Hateley spent three years at Milan, during which he was, alongside his team-mate Wilkins, part of the England squad for the 1986 World Cup, playing in three games. In the summer of 1987, Hateley left Milan to sign for AS Monaco; again, he was signed at the same time as an England international team-mate, with Glenn Hoddle joining him in the principality. While at Monaco, Hateley won the league title, and played seven times for England, including all three games at Euro 1988. Hateley left Monaco in 1990 when he signed for Scottish club Rangers.

28. John Barnes won a total of 79 England caps between 1983 and 1995, but was he playing club football for Watford or Liverpool when he won his first?

From Quiz Three Lions Are Not Just From England

Answer: Watford & W

Barnes was born in Jamaica to Jamaican parents, but national team eligibility criteria drawn by FIFA at the time, allowed British passport holders to represent one of the British football associations even if they had no blood ties to UK. Barnes told the "Jamaican Star", "The only reason I played for England was because they were the first to ask. If Scotland had asked me first I wouldn't have thought I would be good enough to play for England. You go and play for Scotland." Sounds like the FA owe Bobby Robson for having the foresight to ask as Barnes went on to become one of England's most exciting players. Amazingly. although he made his international debut in 1983, it wasn't until after the 1986 World Cup that Barnes became a British passport holder, again telling the "Jamaican Star", "I don't even know if the English F.A. didn't know that I wasn't born there and wasn't brought up there...maybe I played (for England) illegally, right?"

29. Which former England player was nicknamed 'Bites Yer Legs' for his aggressive tackling style?

From Quiz Mister Psycho

Answer: Norman Hunter

The nickname caught on during Hunter's time at Leeds United, after their fans held up a banner reading "Norman Hunter bites yer legs" during the 1972 FA Cup final against Arsenal. Leeds United's then manager Brian Clough also commented on it in a pre-match interview. Hunter's rivalry with Chelsea's Peter Osgood saw clashes on the pitch between the two. He also got into a (rather one-sided, it has to be said) fight with Franny Lee of Derby County in 1975, when Lee won a dubious penalty against Leeds. Hunter responded by punching him. Lee ran down the pitch and attacked Hunter, and the two had to be separated by their team mates. Both players were sent off.
