Football Quiz

UPDATE: I’ve just realised that this might be very difficult for most of you, so next time I’ll make it a lot easier. Give it a go anyway!


Please use the comments section at the bottom to publish your answers. This is a general football quiz, the answers to which I’ll be publishing in about 4 or 5 days (By the way I’ll credit the sites that helped in the Answers section). It’s fairly long (40 questions) so don’t bother answering them all if you don’t have time/can’t be bothered.

PLEASE DO NOT USE GOOGLE TO LOOK UP THE ANSWERS!
