Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. This Danish Dynamite striker has always been one of the most popular players in Black & Yellow. Playing for the BVB from 1990 to 1995, he managed to score 20 goals in 116 Bundesliga matches. Welcome to number 11 - his name is Flemming _________ .

Answer: Povlsen

Although Flemming Povlsen did not score many goals for Borussia Dortmund he was, nevertheless, one of the Yellow Wall's all-time favourites. (The Yellow Wall is the stand on the southern side of the stadium. It holds approximately 30.000 home fans.) Never giving up, always fighting to the last, Flemming was really what you may call 'Danish Dynamite'. Appropriately enough, he was part of the Danish national team which won the European Championship in 1992 (beating Germany 2-0 in the final). With Borussia Dortmund, Flemming Povlsen won the national championship title in 1995. Sadly, he had to end his career much too early (at the age of only 28) because of several severe knee injuries.
2. This great Swiss striker came in 1991 and remained until 1999, when he moved on to Grasshoppers Club Zürich. He scored 102 goals in 218 Bundesliga matches for Borussia Dortmund. He played in the number 9 jersey - Stéphane ____ .

Answer: Chapuisat

Stéphane Chapuisat will always be remembered as 'Chappi' in Dortmund.
With 102 goals scored in the Black & Yellow, he became Borussia Dortmund's all time most successful international scorer in 1999. During his time in Dortmund, Chappi won two national championships ('95 & '96), two German supercups ('96 & '97), the UEFA Champions League ('97) as well as the Interconinental Cup ('97), making him one of the most successful players in the history of Borussia Dortmund.
3. This boulder of a man from Brazil was Borussia Dortmund's central defender from 1994 to 1999. Known for combining robustness with sportsmanlike behaviour and fairness, he quickly became highly respected in the whole Bundesliga. Welcome to our number 5 - Júlio _________ .

Answer: César

Júlio César da Silva came from the Italian top team Juventus FC to Borussia Dortmund in 1994. He was widely considered to be one of Brazil's best central defenders (and, of course, one of the best defenders in the German Bundesliga!), using his considerable technical skills to also lend support to the offensive. With the BVB he won, among other titles, the UEFA Champions League and the Intercontinental Cup in 1997.
4. Despite playing for Borussia Dortmund for only a little over one year (1996-97), this Scottish Braveheart conquered the Yellow Wall's heart with ease. His ability to always keep fighting made him the favourite midfielder for many fans. He played in the number 14 jersey - Paul ______ .

Answer: Lambert

Paul Lambert was signed by Borussia Dortmund's manager Ottmar Hitzfeld in 1996. Although Paul was with the BVB for only one season, his influence on the club has never been forgotten:
In the UEFA Champions League Final 1997 against Juventus he was assigned to disturb the influence of Juve star midfielder Zinedine Zidane. He did so brilliantly and thence became the first British player to win the reformed European Champions League trophy (it was the European Cup prior to 1992).
5. This Brazilian left-side defender came to the BVB in 1998. After playing an astonishing 322 Bundesliga matches in Black & Yellow, he left Borussia Dortmund in 2011 as German champion and a living legend. Welcome to our number 17 - Olé ______ .

Answer: Dédé

Leonardo de Deus Santos (Dédé) may be considered to be the most legendary international player of Borussia Dortmund. With his 322 appearances in the Bundesliga, he is the record international player of Dortmund - ranking in an overall second place in 2011 (after Michael 'Susi' Zorc, who played 463 matches for the BVB).

In his 13 years wearing Black & Yellow Dédé won two German championship titles (2002 & 2011). During his last match in the Signal-Iduna Park more than 80,000 supporters gave him standing ovations for minutes, and celebrated his great achievements for the club by singing the traditional 'Olé, Dédé! Olé, Dédé!' He might have got even greater international approval - but he had the misfortune to have an even (slightly, mind) better left defender competing on his position: his fellow countryman Roberto Carlos from Real Madrid.
6. This giant striker from the Czech Republic came to Borussia Dortmund in 2001. When he left in 2006 he had scored 59 goals in 138 Bundesliga matches. Exploiting his height, many of those goals were headers. He played in the number 9 jersey - Jan ______ .

Answer: Koller

Jan Koller was literally a giant, but despite his rather fearsome stature he was known throughout the Bundesliga to be a very friendly and fair player.
Scoring eleven goals in the 2001-02 season, he considerably helped Borussia Dortmund to win the national title in that year. Together with his Czech colleague Tomás Rosický, he also managed to reach the UEFA Cup final in Rotterdam that year. Sadly enough, despite Jan Koller scoring, the BVB lost that match 3-2 to the Dutch club Feyenoord.
7. This rather fine-boned offensive midfielder from the Czech Republic played for Borussia Dortmund from 2001 to 2006, when he went on to Arsenal in London. Known for his fine technique and his ability to direct the course of a game, he really deserved his given nickname: Little Mozart. Welcome to our number 10 - Tomás ________ .

Answer: Rosický

At the beginning of 2001, Tomás Rosický joined Borussia Dortmund as the most expensive player in Bundesliga history at that point. Tomás soon proved that he was worth every single cent: together with his Czech countryman Jan Koller, he formed a part of the fine BVB offensive - leading Dortmund to the Bundesliga championship and into the UEFA Cup final in the following year.
Many a Black & Yellow fan was sad when this skillful player left us in 2006, and subsequently enriched Arsenal's offensive potential.
8. This Turkish international defensive midfielder came to Borussia Dortmund in 2005 and left in 2011. After playing for Real Madrid and Liverpool FC he returned to the BVB in the winter of 2013, much to the delight of the Yellow Wall. He played in the number 18 jersey - Nuri ______ .

Answer: Sahin

Nuri Sahin was actually born in Lüdenscheid, Germany. Due to his heritage he opted against playing for the German national team and instead chose to play for Turkey (therefore I decided to include him in this quiz of international Borussia Dortmund players). His first appearance in Black & Yellow was on 6th August 2005: at the age of 16 years and 334 days, Nuri set a record by becoming the youngest player to ever have played in the Bundesliga.

While he was always very popular in Dortmund, his nation-wide acknowledgement came when he led the BVB to the surprise championship title in 2011.

After his slightly less than successful interlude with Real Madrid and Liverpool, supporters of Dortmund were happy to have him "finally home again - right where he belongs!"
9. This striker from Switzerland came to Borussia Dortmund in 2006 and stayed until 2009, when he returned to his hometown club FC Basel. In 74 Bundesliga matches he scored 34 goals, and earned much popularity among the fans. Welcome to our number 13 - Alexander ______ .

Answer: Frei

Alex Frei came to Borussia Dortmund in 2006, at a time when the club was having serious financial troubles. But whenever you ask any BVB supporter why Alex is such a memorable player in the club's history, he will undoubtly refer to 14th September 2008: Borussia Dortmund was playing against their arch rivals Schalke 04.

When the half time result of 0-3 showed on the scoreboard, a bleakness spread amongst the supporters of Dortmund. After Neven Subotic brought us back into the game, it was none other than Alex Frei who scored two goals in the last fifteen minutes of the match, thereby preventing months of humiliation by Schalke. For that match alone, Alex has earned his place in the heart of the Yellow Wall.
10. This not too tall Japanese offensive midfielder first wore Black & Yellow in 2010. Despite playing only two years for Borussia Dortmund (before moving on to Manchester United) his extraordinary skill has quickly won him the hearts of the fans. He played in the number 23 jersey - Shinji ______ .

Answer: Kagawa

In 2010 Shinji came from the Japanese club Cerezo Osaka to Borussia Dortmund. He was quickly seen in Dortmund's starting formation, considerably adding to the offensive power of the BVB. In the two years he played for Dortmund, Shinji scored 21 goals in 49 Bundesliga matches - winning the championship title in 2011, and the double in 2012 - before he (sadly) went to Premier League giant Manchester United.
