The Great Squad Numbers Christmas Quiz

Followers of us on Twitter will have noticed a few quizzes over recent days, where we show the way a team lined out for a big game and asked them to work out who it was based on which number played where. So impressed were we by the knowledge of the people who responded that we have decided to expand it a little bit by doing one on here.

There are five ‘questions’, with a tricky tie-breaker involved if needed. While our budget probably can’t stretch to a prize, we would ask that you enter by emailing squadnumbersblog@gmail.com so as not to spoil it for others by writing your answers in the comments section. Good luck!

  1. I stumbled across this fantastic website yesterday – I thought it was only me who got overly bothered about the reasons for choosing certain numbers at particular times. Thank goodness it’s not just me.

    Anyway – do we have answers anywhere to this quiz?

  2. Hi Ben,

    Thanks for the kind words – strangely, the quiz got more traction on Twitter than here, hence the lack of answers. Here they are:

    1. Borussia Dortmund, 1997 Champions League final
    2. Everton, 1995 FA Cup final – I’ll admit it, I was trying to prompt a couple of Chelsea answers with 26 at CB!
    3. Spain, 2010 World Cup final
    4. Arsenal, 2003 FA Cup final (strangely, Pires and Ljungberg played on the opposite flanks to usual)
    5. Denmark, 1992 European Championship final
