Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Jadon Sancho

Answer: Borussia Dortmund

Sancho developed his skills while a youth player at Watford and Manchester City before moving to Dortmund in 2017, aged just 17. He soon became a first team regular for the club and in 2018 he was called up by the England team, making his debut as a substitute in a 0-0 draw with Croatia.

In March 2019, he started an England game for the first time as England beat Czech Republic 5-0 in a Euro 2020 qualifier.
2. David Watson

Answer: Werder Bremen

Defender, Watson was part of the Sunderland team that unbelievably beat Leeds United in the 1973 FA Cup final, a role which saw him secure a move to Manchester City, where he helped the team win the League Cup and finish second in the league to Liverpool by just one point. A move to Werder Bremen followed in 1979, where Watson made an impact for all the wrong reasons.

His first game went OK, but in his second game he was sent off and banned by the German FA for eight weeks. He then had a falling out with the Bremen management which meant that after just a few months Bremen wanted him gone, and sold him to Southampton, giving Watson the unenviable record of having played more times for his country (four) than for his club (twice), while in Germany.
3. Scott Carson

Answer: Bursaspor

Carson was a product of the Leeds United youth academy who made just three appearances for the Yorkshire giants, against Middlesbrough, Manchester United and Chelsea before signing for Liverpool in 2005. Between 2005 and 2008, he made just four appearances for Liverpool; they sold him to West Bromwich Albion, where he soon established himself as first choice keeper.

He made two appearances with the England squad while at Liverpool and another one while with WBA before moving abroad in 2011, when he signed for Turkish club Bursaspor.

His final England cap came the same year when he replaced Joe Hart at half time in the team's 1-0 victory over Sweden.
4. Paul Gascoigne

Answer: Lazio

Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne is surely one of the most naturally gifted players that England has ever produced. His career began at Newcastle United before a move to Tottenham Hotspur in 1988 and by the time he moved to Lazio of Italy in 1992, he already had 20 England caps.

He added to this tally while at Lazio, earning a further 12 international call ups and added yet more when Lazio sold him to Rangers in 1995, winning a further 22 caps while playing for the Scottish giants. Gazza also played for Chinese second division team, Gansu Tianma in 2003 but failed to win any England call-ups while there.
5. Gary Lineker

Answer: Barcelona

Linekar was a gifted striker with an eye for knowing where the keeper was and an ability to place the ball out of his reach. He won 50 England caps while with Leicester City, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur and 30 while playing at Barcelona between 1986 and 1989.
He also ended his career with a successful spell at Nagoya Grampus Eight of Japan, but wasn't selected by England while there. In total Linekar played 567 competitive games over a 16 year career and never received a single yellow or red card.
6. David Platt

Answer: Juventus

In 1993, Platt became the first England player to represent his country while playing for three different foreign teams. Although his international career began while at Aston Villa and ended while at Arsenal, in between the two he played for Bari, Juventus and Sampdoria, all from Italy. In total Platt won 62 England caps, 33 of which came while playing in Serie A.
7. Owen Hargreaves

Answer: Bayern Munich

As a Canadian born to a Welsh mother and English father, Hargreaves was eligible to play for any of the three countries. He began his professional career with German side Bayern Munich in 1999 and when he was selected for the England squad in 2001, became the first player to represent England without having played in the country. Of his 42 England caps, 39 came while playing in Germany and the other three were awarded in 2008, while he was playing for Manchester United.
8. Kevin Keegan

Answer: Hamburg

Keegan made 63 appearances for England, 38 of which came while playing in England for Liverpool and Southampton. The remaining 25 were gained while a player for German side SV Hamburg between 1977 and 1980. Keegan also played two games for Australian side, Blacktown City in 1985 but this was three years after his international career had ended.
9. Trevor Francis

Answer: Detroit Express

Francis was actually a Birmingham City player at the time, but was on loan to Detroit when he won two of his 52 England caps. His time in the USA was certainly profitable, as he scored 22 goals in 19 games for Detroit, before returning to Birmingham who famously made him England's first million pound player when they sold him to Nottingham Forest in 1979. Francis would also go on to win 20 England caps while playing for Italian side Sampdoria between 1982 and 1986, but wasn't capped while playing for Atalanta, also of Italy, or Wollongong City of Australia.
10. Tony Woodcock

Answer: FC Cologne

Woodcock had a solid career, playing 129 games for Nottingham Forest, 131 games for Arsenal and 130 games in two separate spells for FC Koln of Germany.
He won a total of 42 England caps, 17 of which came while playing in Germany, where he also played for Fortuna Koln, although he didn't play for England while there.
